There will be no fun in the sun for Offutt Air Force personnel and their families this summer, at least not by the pool.

According to the 55th Wing public affairs, the Offutt Base Pool and the Capehart Pool will not be opened due to the sequestration, or budget cuts.

Many expressed outrage about the decision on Offutt’s Facebook page. However, several people posted reminders that pools are still available at other locations like the Papio Fun Park, in Papillion, FunPlex near 72nd & Q, and that the city of Bellevue operates several public pools including Sorenson Pool just north of the base.
