What Happens to the “Valuable” Troops?

Air Force Reserve Command plans to inactivate all five of its combat logistics support squadrons next month. The squadrons and some 650 highly skilled airmen are located at Hill AFB, Utah, Lackland AFB, Tex., Robins AFB, Ga., Tinker AFB, Okla., and Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio. Their job has been to handle aircraft battle damage repair and combat supply and packaging operations. AFRC says it wants to keep these “valuable people,” but it must realign them to employ “its forces in the most efficient way possible.”
