Ellsworth Air Force Base To Downsize

April 5, 2014, 4:22 PM

Ellsworth Air Force Base To Downsize
PIEDMONT, SD -

Ellsworth Air Force Base plans to downsize personnel this year as part of a nationwide shift in Air Force funding priorities.

Col. Kevin Kennedy said Friday that a little more than 1,000 airmen have been given the opportunity to accept a cash payment and voluntarily separate from the 28th Bomb Wing.

Offers of voluntary separation or early retirement have been extended to airmen across the country. Personnel will have until the summer to decide whether to accept them.

Kennedy said the total number the 28th Bomb Wing will lose will depend on how many airmen across the country accept offers.

Ellsworth currently has 3,350 active duty personnel and 572 civilian employees.
