"The Air Force three months ago exceeded a goal of retaining 55 percent of first-termers, garnering 68 percent. In fact, the branch is 20,000 over its budget-authorized personnel strength and is transferring some airmen to the Army. "
There was a long article about this in the local paper back in the fall, but I think it's not on the web site anymore. IIRC, some airmen were being transferred to infantry units and were not happy about it - at least they were less than enthusiastic.
