Cuts could shrink military to smallest size since WWII - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

Cuts could shrink military to smallest size since WWII

Good Tuesday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here with a look at some of the stories you will see on today's Sunrise:

*Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is off to Norfolk today to explain billions of dollars in cuts he is proposing for next year.  The cuts would shrink our military to its smallest size since World War II.  What kind of impact could it have on Ft. Polk?  We'll dive deeper into these numbers this morning.

*The Port of Lake Charles board says "no" to granting permits to Lake Charles Stevedores and the James J. Flanagan Shipping Corporation.  It has to do with timely payments and an on-going lawsuit.

*A new audit says Planned Parenthood in Louisiana has complied with laws that ban public funds from being used to pay for abortions or to encourage abortions.  We'll take a look at the results.

*A Baton Rouge native and former Navy SEAL is found dead on a ship overseas.  It's the same ship that was the focus of a 2009 hijacking dramatized in the movie, "Captain Phillips."  We'll tell you what investigators are saying led to this man's dead and the death of his colleague.

*Rain chances are on the rise this week.  Meteorologist Ben Terry says you definitely need your umbrella today.  He'll have your forecast that extends all the way into Mardi Gras.

Make it a Sunrise day!
