    Interesting that AF and Army are trying to shed people and the Navy is looking to fill 8,000 slots.... Below are excerpts from a Navy times article.

    The largest challenge facing the surface fleet is continuing to maintain and deploy ready warships amid a shortage of 8,000 sailors, the surface Navy’s top boss said Tuesday

    Officials are expected to lay out some new plans — including boosted bonuses

    My DD is an AD A1C in the AF. Her career field is aerospace medicine. While home on leave for the holidays she mentioned a "blue to blue" program where its possible for someone in the AF to transition into the navy with little paperwork. I assume it is based on several things but it would seem a viable option for some of the AF folks being asked to leave.
