AF Reserve to begin changes

Air Force Reserve Command officials are moving forward with force structure changes authorized by the National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal 2013. Among other things, the legislation authorizes new Air Force Reserve intelligence squadrons at four installations, including Hurlburt Field in Northwest Florida, slated to get the 28th Intelligence Squadron. Also in this region, Barksdale Air Force Base, La., will inactivate the 917th Fighter Group and retire 24 A-10C Thunderbolt IIs and transfer three A-10Cs to Whiteman AFB, Mo. (Source: AFNS, 01/25/13)
