Staff Sgt. Calvin Manning Jr. planned a career in the Marine Corps, but now that has all changed. With 13 years on active duty and seven years left until retirement, Manning, 32, is about to be cut loose from the Marines, another victim of Pentagon reductions, which will pare the Marine Corps to 159,000 in 1997--cutting 6,000 men and women a year for the next five years.

The cutbacks announced Thursday by the Pentagon would have the greatest impact on California of any state, eliminating 12,775 National Guard and reserve jobs within two years and curtailing disaster emergency responses statewide. The planned reduction in mostly part-time forces also would be a blow to the state's ailing economy. About 60 units in California would be closed and many reservists would lose the supplemental income that they rely on.

His assignment to Balboa Naval Hospital in San Diego meant leaving his wife behind in Irvine. It also meant trading his $12,000-a-month job as director of a hospital emergency room for a $4,000-a-month position as a Navy pediatrician. At first, the contrast made him homesick. Now, he is fighting to stay.
