RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - The Air Force has selected
Seymour Johnson Air Force Base over three other alternatives as the location for the first Reserve-led KC-46A Pegasus Air Refueling Squadron.

North Carolina beat out bases in Oklahoma, Indiana, and Massachusetts.

“The Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve are vital to accomplishing our air refueling mission. Therefore, the ability to recruit for and maintain a strong Reserve component association was a major consideration in this basing action," said Secretary of the Air Force Deborah Lee James in a statement released by Gov. Pat McCrory.

Boeing manufactures the KC-46, which is a wide body tanker used to refuel aircraft.

The aircraft are expected at Seymour Johnson in 2019.

RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - Letters are going out by the thousands to victims of the Office of Personnel Management's data breach. The agency tells Federal News Radio that 3.7 letters have been mailed and, all told, 10 million will be mailed by the middle of next month.

More than double that were victims of the breach, in which personal data -- including, in some cases, fingerprints -- were stolen in a hack of the human resources database.

Those impacted were people applying for security clearances  or who were the subject of a background investigation, or who were listed on someone's application as a reference.

RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz has introduced a resolution to impeach IRS Commissioner John Koskinen.

FederalNewsRadio.com reports Chaffetz's statement said: “This action will demonstrate to the American people that the IRS is under repair, and signal that Executive Branch officials who violate the public trust will be held accountable.”

Discontent with the IRS among Republicans has risen over the past several years following disclosures that the agency targeted conservative nonprofit groups that were seeking tax exempt status.
