I cannot say if the memos are public knowledge, but I do not remember seeing any markings on the memo saying otherwise. From what I can remember (I unfortunately do not have the memo with me now), the DoD is restricting travel, instituting a hiring freeze, planning for civilian furloughs, and doing what we can to slow burn rates on acquisition programs. Other than that, there have not been a lot of specifics released, which adds to the frustration on my part. But, to be fair, there is not a lot of specifics the DoD level can levy. So it is up to the units to find places to save money if the sequestration hits.
