(CNN) - The Pentagon is apparently planning to "shrink" the number of soldiers in U.S. Army.

According to the New York Times, Defense Secretary Hagel wants to reduce Army forces to their lowest level since before the U.S. entered World War II.

And also wants to eliminate an entire class of Air Force attack jets.

Details of the proposed Pentagon budget will be released later on Monday, and must be approved by Congress.
