Keesler cutting more positions

BILOXI, Miss. -- Keesler Air Force Base is eliminating another 38 civilian positions, base officials said Wednesday. It's the second round of cuts in two months. In November the base said it was eliminating 68 positions from the 1,607 civilian authorizations in the 81st Training Wing and 403rd Wing. The Air Force is offering another round of voluntary separation incentive pay and voluntary early retirement authority programs. Keesler is a major technical training center for the Air Force, including cyber security. (Sources: Sun Herald, WLOX-TV, 01/11/12)
