General view of the entrance of the Joint Systems Manufacturing Center, Lima Army Tank Plant, in Lima, Ohio, April 23, 2012. Lima is one of hundreds of communities across the United States whose workforce is dependent on the billions of dollars that flow every year from the Pentagon to defense contractors to make tanks, fighter jets, warships and related equipment. That spigot is tightening. With the nation increasingly concerned about bloated government spending and with ground wars in Iraq and Afghanistan winding down, the Pentagon has committed to reduce spending by $487 billion over the next decade.
