History of the AFPC

The Air Force Military Personnel Center was originally created in 1963 as a HQ Air Force field extension of the Deputy CS, Personnel. The extension became a separate agency in 1971, and in 1978, changed its name to the Air Force Manpower and Personnel Center (AFMPC). In 1985, the manpower function was separated from the administrative portion, resulting in the new name: Air Force Military Personnel Center.

In 1995, the consolidation of the Air Force Military Personnel Center and Air Force Civilian Personnel Management Center led to the formation of the Air Force Personnel Center. The AFPC took on the functions of both entities and became more efficient.

Air Force Personnel Center

The AFPC takes care of all administrative needs that keep the Air Force strong and combat-ready, and is comprised of seven directorates, each of which manages several programs. These include the following:

- Director of Staff
- Directorate of Air and Space Expeditionary Force Operations
- Directorate of Assignments
- Directorate of Civilian Force Integration
- Directorate of Personnel Data Systems
- Directorate of Personnel Services
- Total Force Service Center—San Antonio Directorate
