How can we streamline the US Air Force when we don't even know who works where? Only about 80% of military members have a valid position number in the manpower system. Of the existing position numbers, more than one person can be slotted against the same position. For civilians the accuracy rate is even worse. We have FOAs and DRUs to hide manpower on headquarters staffs, flights and squadrons that do MAJCOM-level work, and Reservists and ANG to fill gaps missed by the dysfunctional system. The list goes on and on. We can't pretend to fix the organization when we don't even know what the organization is.
