Tyndall cutting 14 positions

TYNDALL AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. -- The Air Force will trim 16,000 civilian employees from its ranks, but only a few will come from Tyndall Air Force Base. Herman Bell, chief of Tyndall's 325th Fighter Wing Public Affairs, said there are about 14 civilian employees that may be impacted, and they'll likely be lost through attrition. The Defense Department announced last week the civilian force at about 60 Air Force installations would be impacted by a reduction in force. Officials pointed out the reductions are not part of the sequestration cuts, which would come later.
