Air Force News Release

MOODY AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. -- The U.S. Air Force recently announced its proposed structure realignment for Fiscal Year 2011 which support the FY11 President's Budget submission.

The proposal provides a summary of the civilian and military personnel changes at Air Force installations for the upcoming fiscal year. 

As a result of the force structure realignment, personnel changes for Moody include:

  •  A decrease by one military position and two civilian positions in support of the acquisition excellence initiative which focuses on recapitalizing the acquisition workforce to ensure the Air Force has the right number of people with the right experience.
  •  An increase by one military position due to enhancing public affairs manpower to support commander's communication efforts.
  •  An increase by four civilian positions as a result of establishing the Fitness Assessment Cell whose mission is to standardize testing throughout the Air Force and to balance health and fitness for Airmen.
  •  An increase by 14 civilian positions as a result of warfighter and family services used to develop and care for our Airmen and their families both here at Moody and while deployed.
  •  An increase by three military positions due to miscellaneous program adjustments.

The total impact for Moody is an increase of three military positions and an increase of 16 civilian positions.

"The force structure announcement reflects our best effort to meet the expanding Air Force mission areas and growing joint demands," said Col. Gary Henderson, 23rd Wing commander.

"This initiative will result in a more efficient use of Air Force resources and savings to the American taxpayer over the long term. Resulting from these changes, a top priority for us is to reduce anxiety of Air Force people: military, civilian, dependents and retirees who will be affected by these force structure actions," he said.
