Commissary/Exchange MergerAs reported in an early post, the merger proposal is moving forward. While exchanges have survived, commissaries have lost their customers to off base competition like Costco. There are a few in Congress who want to eliminate the commissaries. Any change could impact military members and retirees, and bears continued attention

Back to the FutureThe recent post about the Air Force eliminating group commanders, is another recycled idea – that might work this time.

There was a Deputy Commander for Operations, Maintenance, and Support that came into existence a few years after the 154th Wing converted to the F-4C Phantoms. Prior to the deputy commander organization, unit commanders reported directly to the Wing commander. We have another full loop.
