Next Force-Shaping Board in March

The Air Force plans to hold a board on March 31 to winnow out lieutenants in the 2005 year group that are serving in overage career fields. Exempt from this force-shaping effort are officers in the civil engineer, intelligence, public affairs, and security forces career fields. An Air Force Personnel Center release states that eligible lieutenants may elect to voluntarily separate by applying by March 20. In the crosshairs initially are some 130 lieutenants.
