Commission Recommends USAF Shift Manpower to Reserve, National Guard

Defense News report that “the US Air Force should look at moving as much manpower into the Reserve and Air National Guard components as possible, according to a new report from a congressionally mandated panel.”  

“The National Commission on the Structure of the Air Force delivered its long-awaited report Thursday , and as expected, the eight-member committee believes that moving more force structure into the part-time components could save billions of dollars annually that could instead be used for readiness and modernization.”  

“’Recognizing that some missions must be performed by the Active Component, the Air Force can, and should, entrust as many missions as possible to its Reserve Component forces,’ the commissioners wrote in their report.”
