WASHINGTON — Air Force officials are aware of and are actively working to identify any inconsistencies regarding benefits and separation program details associated with the fiscal year 2014 force management programs.
From inception, the multi-year strategy for force management programs was complex and dynamic in nature as the Air Force undertook broad measures to meet mission and budgetary needs. However, given the complex nature described it would be unrealistic to expect perfection.
What the Air Force has said and done throughout the process is to assess each situation and always meet our stated commitment to Airmen through the most fair and equitable means. The Air Force’s approach in all such cases is to work directly with impacted Airmen and their chain of command prior to issuing general public guidance.
As such, more information will be provided as solutions are finalized and personal notifications to Airmen are completed.
