officers in certain Air Force Specialty Codes may be eligible for a retention
bonus up to $30,000, according to an Aug. 7 release. Eligible officers have until Sept. 22 to
apply for the critical skills retention bonus, which is similar to the aviator
pay bonuses announced earlier this year. “We simply can’t afford to lose
the experience and skills of these intelligence officers who are critical to
our national security,” said Lt.
Gen. Bob Otto, head of the ISR directorate on the Air Staff. Certain
incentives will be targeted at key year groups and will be critical to the Air
Force’s effort to size, shape, and stabilize the force, he added. Eligible
officers (captains and majors from the 2004-2007 year groups) must have a 14N
core Air Force Specialty Code, and must be a graduate of the 14N initial skills
training course at Goodfellow AFB, Texas. Depending on grade, years of services,
and option, applicants could be eligible for $12,000, $20,000, or $30,000
