AF releases candidate bases

The Air Force announced eight installations as candidate locations where it will potentially consolidate its Battlefield Airman training. The installations are Eglin Air Force Base, Hurlburt Field and Patrick AFB, all in Florida; Keesler AFB, Miss.; Joint Base San Antonio, Texas; Little Rock AFB, Ark.; Shaw AFB, S.C.; and Vandenberg AFB, Calif. Last year, the Air Force reviewed its Battlefield Airman training, airmen who are part of the nation’s special ops forces. The review determined grouping training at consolidated locations may lead to improvements and synergies in the current training processes. As a result, the Air Force is investigating potential locations to consolidate training. (Source: AFNS, 07/07/16)
