This isnt 100% true. Yes we are like the second largest career field or something like that but last I heard we were at 101% manning (career field wide). Our manning at my base is at 115% for security forces. Our last commander liked deployments haha.
They are forcing people to retrain into CATM and K9 so we have the people just not in certain areas. But believe me... SF always needs people. So its better to not put it on if you dont want it because the "needs of the air force" usually means for SF.
