How Goes the Force

According to the Air Force’s just-released demographics snapshot that reports data as of June 30, the service has 328,763 active duty airmen, with 65,928 officers and 262,835 enlisted members. The service is still shy of its Fiscal 2010 end strength goal of 332,700 airmen by just over 3,900 personnel. That’s improved since the last snapshot, released in April, which showed it about 6,500 short. Compared to the earlier data, the Air Force gender ratio has not changed; women still comprise about 19.6 percent of the force.
