April 8 – Pulse on AF force management

This post was originally published by Hurlburt Field - Current News

April 9, 2014 in Florida, Hurlburt Field by clevine

A limited number of Airmen who received notice that their previously approved applications for early retirement had been declined will be given the option to retire if they still desire to do so, officials announced April 8.

"We are aware that some Airmen received erroneous (temporary early retirement authority) approvals and were subsequently notified of the inaccuracy," said Lt. Gen. Sam Cox, the Air Force deputy chief of staff for manpower, personnel and services. "We regret any potential hardship this created, but we have looked into the specifics of each individual case and are following up with the Airmen impacted by the error. When dealing with decisions that affect Airmen, our goal is zero errors. But, given the complex and dynamic nature of our force management programs it would be unrealistic to say we'll never make a mistake. Where there are mistakes, as an institution, we will make it right."

Each step taken was to honor and remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, said Maj. Jared Brupbacher, 1st Special Operations Group standards and tactics.

"We do it first and foremost to memorialize our brothers and sisters we have lost over the years," said Brupbacher. "Since 9/11, we've lost 31 Air Commandos. And for us all being Air Commandos, it's very near and dear to our hearts that we do this to remember those individuals appropriately."

Commando Fitness Center implements new after-hours policy

The Commando Fitness Center's new after-hours program is giving Airmen more opportunities to work out.

Airmen can use the gym after-hours once they sign a statement of understanding, which outlines the program rules.

Common Access Card sharing has been the most common violation of the after-hour's policy, said 1st Lt. Kristen Baker, Air Force Special Operations Command sustainment services deputy flight commander.

"Every person entering the gym must be registered and use their own CAC to enter the building after-hours," she said. "I like to think it is just people being kind to others and accidently violating the statement of understanding."

Some people see the new year as a good time to make a resolution to lose weight, and with the help of the Weight Warriors Program that resolution was within reach.

"Weight Warriors is an eight-week program that combines healthy eating habits and exercise with encouragement that promotes a healthy lifestyle and weight loss," said Karen Cataldo, Riptide gym manager.

Prior to the start of Weight Warriors, participants were given a pre-assessment fitness test to help track their weight loss during the program. The assessment consisted of a three-minute step test, push-up and sit-up test, body mass index measurement and several other evaluations of physical fitness.
