Abstract : Appendix One: Highlights the major events and policies that have affected Air Force women in uniform since the Air Force was created as a separate Service. Data tables included. Appendix Two: Documents the current procedures used to recruit and train enlisted personnel. It discusses the establishment of accession goals, specific requirements for trained personnel, recruiting, classification, as well as basic military and technical training for both active and reserve components. Gender considerations are highlighted where they exist. Appendix Three was about Minuteman/Peacekeeper crews, and concentrated on impacts of women on mission effectiveness, cost, equal opportunity in career progression, scheduling, and morale. The Air Force concluded that introducing additional stress into a demanding missile crew environment was not considered prudent. Therefore, the Air Force continues to support previous findings that did not recommend the mixed crew concept. The AF has determined that introducing females onto gender-specific crews is feasible and has initiated plans to implement this concept. This appendix provides a summary of the Force Projection Model (FPM) referenced in the body of the report. A brief overview on the general operations of the model is presented first, followed by a more detailed discussion of each aspect of the model.
