Air Force Reserve gains people, moves planes

5/14/2010 - ROBINS AIR FORCE BASE, Ga -- Air Force Reserve Command will gain more people and move aircraft as part of a proposed force structure realignment announced by the Air Force May 11.

The fiscal 2011 realignment will affect some 1,300 positions in the command with increases in security forces, civil engineering and RED HORSE manpower.

"Additional security forces, Prime BEEF and RED HORSE manpower are critical to supporting the combatant commanders as well as the Air Force reservists, their families and their employers," said Brig. Gen. Robert E. Bailey, director of installations and mission support at Headquarters AFRC.

In addition to manpower changes, the announcement addressed the transfer of C-130H2 transport aircraft from Air Force Reserve units to Little Rock AFB, Ark. Ten Reserve and eight Air National Guard transport aircraft will support a C-130H2 Formal Training Unit.

The following AFRC unit locations are part of the Air Force realignment, and the numbers are subject to change in order to meet Air Force requirements:

Thirteen more drill positions will fulfill new security forces manpower requirements.
