Air Force reconsiders retention for 192 lieutenants
/ Published May 25, 2006
WASHINGTON (AFPN) -- The Air Force recently notified 844 lieutenants that they would not be retained as a result of the April 2006 Force Shaping Board.
An anomaly with some records during the board process means 192 of the lieutenants not selected for retention will have their records reconsidered by a special board scheduled to convene June 26.
"Some of the records were missing a required training report from initial skills training," said Maj. Gen. Glenn Spears, director of force management policy, deputy chief of staff for manpower and personnel, Headquarters U.S. Air Force.
The lieutenants have until June 19 to decide if they want to be reconsidered for retention by the special board or accept the results of the April board.
The Air Force will personally notify each of the 192 lieutenants who will meet the special board. No officers retained by the April 2006 Force Shaping Board will be affected by the June special board.
The special board results are scheduled to be announced July 19. Until then, separation processing will continue.
