Air Force to reduce force

Langley Air Force Base in Hampton

LANGLEY AIR FORCE BASE, Va. (WAVY) – The Air Force is planning to reduce its force by up to 25,000 Airmen over the next five years.

According to information from officials at Joint Base Langley–Eustis, the 633rd Force Support Squadron Personnel Section held briefings at the base Jan. 14 in order to prepare Airmen for management programs.

Among the management programs is the enlisted retention program and enlisted quality force review boards, officer force shaping board, enhanced selective early retirement boards, a reduction in force board and office and enlisted voluntary separation pay incentives for Airmen in non-critical, overage specialties. Eligibility requirements will vary.

Before meeting retention boards, Airmen are asked to ensure records in the Personnel Records Display Application are up to date.

“It is critical Airmen take the time to ensure their information is accurate or not missing any critical documentation,” said Lt. Col. Carol Gordon, Air Force Personnel Center Operations Support Division chief.
