(Nellis Air Force Base, NV)  —  Budget cuts have forced the elimination of a squadron at Nellis Air Force Base.

The “Review-Journal” says the 65th Aggressor Squadron will be deactivated at a ceremony next month.

The 65th, which features nearly two-dozen F-15 Eagles, served as mock enemies during Red Flag air combat exercises.

Eliminating the squadron will save an estimated $35 million.
