More staffing reductions announced for Keesler

Another round of staffing reductions at Keesler Air Force Base has just been announced. This second round of reductions includes 38 more positions at Keesler.

November's round of cuts eliminated 68 positions from the 1,607 civilian authorizations in the 81st Training Wing and 403rd Wing.

"These reductions are a result of Air Force initiatives to further streamline installation support, trim the size of management headquarters and tailor support requirement for training development and management," said Brig. Gen. Andrew Mueller, 81st Training Wing commander.
