Ok, I'll post and ask, "So, what is the inside story"? This ought to be good! AND WE FIND OUT A WEEK LATER!!!!


The Air Force Reserve Command’s top enlisted airman has stepped down.

Chief Master Sgt. Kathleen R. Buckner resigned for personal reasons about a week ago, said AFRC spokesman James Miller. She declined a request from Air Force Times for an interview.

Bucker was selected command chief master sergeant in December 2011. She previously served as the command chief master sergeant for the 349th Air Mobility Wing at Travis Air Force Base, Calif., according to a release about her selection. The Gary, Ind.-native had been the command chief master sergeant for the Travis Reserve wing for two years prior to her selection.

Buckner enlisted in the Air Force in 1989 and served in the operations resource management field and as an instructor at Airman Leadership School, according to the release. She left active duty in 1997 and has served as both a traditional reservist and full-time Air Reserve technician.

The process for finding a new command chief master sergeant who will act as an adviser to Command Chief Lt. Gen. James Jackson on readiness, training, utilization, morale, professional development and quality of life for all enlisted members in the Air Force Reserve is already underway, Miller said.

The next command chief master sergeant also will be the functional manager for all Reserve first sergeants, the senior noncommissioned officers responsible for the morale, welfare and conduct of enlisted members at the squadron level throughout the command.

I know this individual is a chief and folks will almost certainly feel the need to bash but her resignation could have more to do with what is actually stated in the article...personal reasons. Could be health, could be anything. I only point this out because normally misconduct that the AF wants to keep low key is identified in other ways...usually it's pointed out as "a loss in confidence" or something to that effect and offering a resignation is usually not an option in those cases.

I am very disappointed in the lot of you!

There is nothing in that article to suggest that Chief Master Sgt. Buckner resigned for any dishonorable reason.

It is just as Bruwin said, she or one of her family members could be in poor health.

You guys should be ashamed! I think you should do something to redeem yourselves.

If my years as a member of the Top 3 taught me anything it was that nothing builds character better than baking.

Tak, since you were the worst offender, go bake a batch of double fudge packed brownies.

If you need help packing your fudge get Flaps to help you.

Now get going!

I’ll stay here and write EPR bullets.

Just another sad sign of our country's obsession with selacious and sensational reporting. She's guilty until proven innocent. She could just be ready to retire, have health issues, or got a better job offer. I know none of that is as exciting as speculating on a scandal...

The Chief is a reservists. I assume that in order to be a Reserve Command Chief you accept the position as a full time Air Reserve Technician. When you are an Air Reserve Technician or Air Guard Technician you are allowed to resign your position (though it may affect your ability to recieve future positions). so the answer to your question is yes the NCOIC of MPF or the LE desk can resign if they are a reservist/guardsman. In fact it happens all the time when people find a better civilain position, are inept at their job, or for a variety of other reasons.

They are AGR tours....you don't exactly resign but you can curtail... I am assuming that this is a more specialer postion that you can resign from? I would also guess that the Chief was retirement eligible so it is possible she didn't resign so much as drop her retirement... Even if her resignation was requested it doesn't necessarily mean she did anything wrong. It is possible she just didn't get along with the Commander or something....

That is the point I was trying to make. There are certain Enlisted positions where a person is appointed. I would assume that if you are appointed you could also resign. The poster above seemed to be insinuating that an Enlisted person could never resign a position. I was just making the point that it does actually happen and sometimes at much lower levels than this. When I was working travel pay it was not uncommon for reserve members to end a tour early for various reasons. Sometimes it is exactly what you mentioned, a personality clash. If you are a reservists who volunteered for a tour you can almost always volunteer to end it early.

Mind sharing? Interesting that the AFT story doesn't mention she was asked to resign, so I'd be interested in seeing what was sent out (assuming it was a mass email to the entire unit and not something that was mass distributed).
