Approximately 94 percent of the U.S. Navy’s more than 200,000 civilian employees would have to be furloughed as the branch handles cuts under sequestration.

The Navy is also determining which ship and aircraft maintenance projects to defer and how to apply reprogrammed funds, according to a Navy memo obtained by the Washington Post.

Eric Yoder writes civilian employees in combat zones, foreign nationals, workers that provide patients emergency and in-patient healthcare and employees involved in intelligence and protecting life or property would be exempt from the unpaid days off.

Civilian mariners at sea would also not be subject to furloughs, according to the report.
