Wright-Patterson eliminates 251 civilian jobs

The Associated Press

        DAYTON, Ohio — Wright-Patterson Air Force Base will lose 251 civilian employees through voluntary early retirements and separations in what has become an annual downsizing exercise.

        The sixth annual “outprocessing” on Wednesday finished the paperwork for civilian workers who are taking advantage of an incentive program to reduce the base's work force.

        The group leaving this year was the smallest in several years. About 450 left last January.
        Overall, the base has seen its total civilian and military work force shrink from a post-World War II peak of about 30,000 to about 20,000 now.
