Air Force Announces 2003 Force Structure Changes

Washington D.C. -- (AFPN) March 22, 2002 -- Air Force officials announced fiscal 2003 force structure changes March 22 that will result in a total increase of 470 positions, 299 military authorizations, 142 civilian authorizations, and 29 drill authorizations.
