Furloughs have begun at the Youngstown Air Reserve Station in Vienna.
The involuntary furloughs will include each Monday through August 26 and involved about 400 employees.
Massive budget cuts at the federal level, known as the sequester, spurred the furlough plan.
Security and fire assets at the station will continue to provide resources and protection.
The cutbacks are expected to save the Defense Department about $1.8 billion nationwide.
