Air Force: It's Time to Get Rid of Stupid Policies
Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David Goldfein announced last week that he will delegate to wing commanders the ability to waive crew relief restrictions as they see fit. "We don't have a problem with crew rest at all," Goldfein told reporters during the Air Force Association's Air, Space & Cyber Conference. "That's not the problem statement that we're even approaching. The question is, if we're in combat and we have a mission that's required, what is the decision authority where a commander then can make a call?" he said, alongside Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson. The change is part of the service's overall goal to get rid of the policies that bog down airmen, Goldfein said. For more details, see this Military.com article.
