JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) — Beginning June 15, Airmen in some special duty assignments will receive adjustments in special duty assignment pay, Air Force Personnel Center officials announced.

Based on recommendations following a routine biennial review of the program, Pentagon officials have modified the program to ensure Air Force application meets legal criteria, said Master Sgt. Robin Childers, the AFPC special programs branch manager.

“Board members analyzed each (special duty assignment pay) rule for recertification to make sure (special duty assignment pay) is paid only to Airmen whose duties are extremely difficult or involve an unusual degree of responsibility,” Childers explained. “More than 12,000 enlisted Airmen currently get special duty assignment pay.”

Additions include eligible operations intelligence Airmen serving at Operating Location A, 68th Network Warfare Squadron, Ft. Bragg, N.C., and Air Force Specialty Code 1T0XX — or survival, evasion, resistance and escape — Airmen assigned to Fairchild Air Force Base, Wash., at the 336th Training Group, the 336th Training Support Squadron or the 22ndTraining Squadron, or a 22nd TRS subordinate unit in Colorado, Alabama or Texas.

Special duty assignment pay will be reduced for military free-fall parachute instructors at Yuma Proving Grounds, and air transportation Airmen performing aerial duty will no longer be authorized special duty assignment pay, said Childers.

For more information about the special duty assignment pay program, or to see the full table of changes that will take place June 15, go to the myPers website at https://mypers.af.mil, or contact the local military personnel section or flight.

Ten seconds later, that picture still exists

RAMSTEIN AIR BASE, Germany — There is a conversation many teenagers have had with their parents or friends, me included. “Hey, don’t worry!
