The Personal Side of Force Shaping:

The Air Force force-shaping efforts for 2006 came home with a vengeance for two airmen at Robins AFB, Ga., recently who were told they must leave the service by October, reports the Macon Telegraph. The two happen to be married to each other and both, not one, got cut. According to the Telegraph, Lt. Laureen James felt she was more vulnerable as a personnel officer than her husband, newly promoted Capt. Travis James, who is a security forces officer. Travis James leads the base’s SWAT team and had served in Iraq. Both had been named officer of the year. It does make one wonder. And, there are some 40,000 more to come.
