    They're cutting even more now in addition to the force shaping boards that have already met, in my particular AFSC they're trimming 34.x% from all officer ranks :eek3:.

    Not really, Comm is just the hardest hit. We're the second biggest chunk of manpower after aviation - however they figure they've invested too much in the pilots... :dunno:

    "Not really, Comm is just the hardest hit. We're the second biggest chunk of manpower after aviation - however they figure they've invested too much in the pilots."

    Because its much easier to contract out most of the Comm inside of the USAF.

    i think the total number to go is 35728 or something along them lines
    just got the notice today, 3800 are from usafe though most are going to be taken form kelfack (sp) in iceland since they are closing it for the af

    my job is safe and no one at my base in ce is losing a slot....

    id put money that CE has more manpower then comm though same can be said with contracting it out
    because they do want people that cant deploy working with CE at all times
    since we do deploy so often

    Ahhh, more jobs for the ex military civilian pukes like me :)

    Got my final VA rating...30%

    After I finish my BS, I have first priority over anyone except other disabled vets regardless of their education or experience. Government Hiring for the win
