DEPARTMENT OF THE ARMY.
Army officer personnel assigned to activities outside the Army proper
419 Lieutenant colonel..
1, 053 Major.--
3, 993 Assignments to activities outside the Army proper includes agencies not directly controlled by the Army such as Department of Defense and JCS areas, joint activities such as NATO, SHAPE, MAGS, and missions and civilian agencies.
Col. CLAIR B. MITCHELL,
United States Army. Mr. ARENDS. Mr. Miller.
Mr. MILLER. I notice the air attaché in Brazil is a major general, too. I can understand having one major general down there because Brazil is of extraordinary importance to us, I think. What is the necessity for having this man that is in charge of this MAAG and an air attaché both major generals?
General WETZEL. Well, as a matter of fact, the position air attaché, Brazil, is now filled by a colonel and will continue to be.
Mr. MILLER. Is he out
General WETZEL. Yes. This is as of January 1. Later on I will tell you of 10 positions that we have now that we are now not filling with generals.
The only air attaché presently occupied by a general officer is Great Britain.
Mr. BLANDFORD. And the Iceland defense force; is that a combined JCS effort, or what is that?
General WETZEL. The Iceland defense force is a United States command. The commander is an Air Force general, General Brownfield. He wears two hats. He is also island commander under SACLant, a NATO organization. But in his role as Iceland defense force commander, he reports to CinCLant.
Mr. BLANDFORD. And the Atomic Energy Commission; is that the only
General WETZEL. That is presently the only general officer that we have in that Commission.
Mr. BLANDFORD. And obviously you have a very healthy officer corps among your general officers, because you have a very small pipeline in hospitals.
General WETZEL. A very small pipeline.
Mr. BLANDFORD. That completes, then, Mr. Chairman, the nuinber of officers now serving on active duty in the Air Force.
We might—would you prefer to complete these billet justifications or would you like to present a résumé at this moment of the general officers serving on active duty and what changes have been made among those that we have discussed, or do you think we should discuss the billet justification first and then take that up? General WETZEL. You can do it any way you like.
Perhaps it would be best, however, to explain that this list was compiled as of January 1. Listed were the generals occupying general officer slots.
