Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said the Pentagon will recall the majority of its civilian furloughed workers. The Defense Department had placed 350,000 civilians on furloughs after the government shut down last week. "Ultimately, the surest way to end these damaging and irresponsible furloughs, and to enable us to fulfill our mission as a Department, is for Congress to pass a budget and restore funds for the entire federal government," Hagel said in a statement.
