AAFES Reorganization

I suggest the Air Force and possibly the entire DoD contract out AAFES (or like) factilities at installation level. Yes, in many ways AAFES does have a difficult mission, however in many ways it's no different then companies like Walmart/COSCO. Those companies also support/run international factilities and I believe that they would be willing to start up outlets in deployed areas for those that complain that only AAFES... more »

Wake-On-Lan utilization in the USAF

I am an IT contractor working on Hurlburt Field, an Air Force Base in Florida.

Deploy the whole base and turn out the lights

Align AEF's so the entire wing is sourced at once. Combine the "share the forces where you need them" concept of the AEF with the ability to get everyone out of town and turn off the lights at the home station that we had with the AEW of past. Currently we try to deploy some here and there from the base but the home mission continues so we spend money hiring civillians or backfills. Simple 2 step process. Put EVERYONE... more »
