The Air Force Reserve is in the midst of creating a single entity that will answer and field requests for Air Force Reservists from all over the service, Lt. Gen. Charles Stenner, AFR chief, said Tuesday. The new Force Generation Center will streamline dozens of individual major command and other organizational conduits into the Reserve through a single clearinghouse that will better rationalize who gets personnel, and in what numbers, Stenner told attendees at an Air Force Association-sponsored Air Force Breakfast Series presentation in Arlington, Va. He said he wants the new outfit up and running by October 2011. The new center will have oversight of all Reserve manpower allocations and thus be better able to send them where they will have the greatest effect, he said.
