Some Airmen to Take Temporary Break From Military Service Under New Personnel Strategy

1 min read

The U.S. Air Force has chosen 35 airmen to take one to three years off from military service to test a new personnel strategy in the U.S. military, Federal News Radio reported Thursday.

Scott Maucione writes the Career Intermission Program first launched in 2014 and the 2016 National Defense Authorization Act removed the limit on the number of airmen that can be selected for the program.

“Airmen permanently separate from the Air Force for many reasons, some of which are short-term issues,” Adriana Bazan, military personnel specialist at the Air Force Personnel Center, told the station.

Lt. Gen. Gina Grosso, Air Force deputy chief of staff for manpower, personnel and services headquarters, told Federal News Radio service branch hopes to gain flexibility from Congress in the next years to allow airmen to opt out of the promotion process or change the amount of time officers can serve under a rank.
