Hurlburt Field announced Thursday it will eliminate 100 civilian positions with the Air Force’s special operations command according to a report from Associated Press.

Base officials, in a news release, said more than half of the jobs are already vacant and will remain unfilled.

Other layoffs are expected at nearby Eglin Air Force Base. Nationwide the Air Force plans to trim 9,000 civilian jobs as part of ongoing cost cutting measures.
