BUCKLEY AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. --
The 460th Force Support Squadron, Veterans Affairs office and service component recruiters have been working diligently to ensure service members and civilians are prepared to make an informed decision during recently implemented force management initiatives.
Airmen eligible for or affected by force management but wish to remain in uniform may consider the Air Force Reserve or Air National Guard.
Air Force Reserve members are ready forces, some standing by waiting for the call to activation while others wear the uniform daily. According to the Air Force Reserve website, reservists accomplish approximately "20 percent of the work of the Air Force."
The Air National Guard supports both state and federal missions, supporting everything from natural disasters to humanitarian and wartime operations at home and abroad.
Palace Chase is an early release program for enlisted and officer members to transfer from active duty to a Reserve or Guard position. Palace Front is also a transfer program from active duty to Reserve or Guard position, however, the difference is members would normally complete their active-duty service commitment before transferring.
