Air Force to Allow Three Years Off to Start FamiliesErin Gloria Ryan5/15/14 5:15pmFiled to: having it allwork life balancerunning in heelsmilitaryair force548EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkWhat a topsy turvy week it's been. Perfect couple Beyonce and Jay Z are now models of dysfunction. The flagship indoctrination station of the left wing liberal media fires its first female executive editor. Cats are attacking dogs. And now, the US Military takes the lead on an important issue of women's rights. Is this real life?According to the Air Force Times, a pilot (heh) program will allow airmen (a gender neutral term) to "separate from the Air Force" for up to three years in order to start their families, and then return to the service once their kid's big enough to not shit itself if left alone for five minutes. The program will launch (again, heh) later this year and will affect a small number of airmen before, hopefully, expanding to the general population of the Air Force.
