Kansas Guard Unit to Be Cut by Nearly 30 Percent


WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — As a result of ongoing federal cuts to defense spending, a Kansas Air National Guard official says a Wichita unit could see almost a third of its full-time positions eliminated. The 184th Intelligence Wing stationed at the McConnell Air Force Base is expected to lose nearly 30 percent of its full-time positions by the end of the next fiscal year. The Wing's commander tells the Wichita Eagle that Kansas is shouldering a heavier load of the Air National Guard cuts than other states. If all of the 184th's cuts are made as expected, the Wing will account for almost half of the total reduction for all Air National Guard units. He says that was driven by the types of missions carried out by some of the 184th's units and not because Kansas was singled out specifically.
