Furloughs scrap NJ base’s July Fourth event



JOINT BASE MCGUIRE-DIX-LAKEHURST, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey’s Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst has canceled its annual July Fourth celebration due to furloughs caused by congressionally mandated automatic budget cuts.

The annual event featured displays by the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard. There also were fireworks.

The Defense Department recently announced furloughs for most civilian employees would begin in July. In a statement, the New Jersey military installation said it relies heavily on those employees to host the event.
