BERLIN —

The U.S. Army says it's cutting 160 civilian support positions in Europe as it moves ahead with plans to reduce the number of soldiers on the continent.

The military said in a statement Friday that the Department of the Army positions would be cut through September 2013 and that U.S. Army Europe would "continue to transform the civilian workforce to match the demands of supporting its uniformed forces."

There are currently some 4,700 Department of the Army and local civilians employed by U.S. Army Europe.

The Pentagon is in the process of eliminating two heavy armored brigades based in Germany. That will leave two U.S. Army combat brigades permanently stationed in Europe, one in Germany and one in Italy.
