Army Civilian Corps established

The Army Civilian Corps is meant to unify the Army civilian service and embody the commitment of civilians who serve as an integral part of our Army team

WASHINGTON (Army News Service, July 12, 2006) – Top Army leaders announced the establishment of the Army Civilian Corps last month.

“The Army Civilian Corps is meant to unify the Army civilian service and embody the commitment of civilians who serve as an integral part of our Army team,” said Army Secretary Francis J. Harvey and Army Chief of Staff Gen. Peter J. Schoomaker in a joint memorandum to Army personnel.

Army civilians work side by side with Soldiers deployed around the world. They have played many roles in America’s fight against terror, from assisting in reconstruction projects in Iraq and Afghanistan to training Soldiers for deployment.

“The Corps provides identity for the civilian force comparable to their military counterparts – the officer, enlisted and NCO Corps,” said Melinda McMillon Darby, Assistant G-1 for Civilian Personnel.

The Army Civilian Corps Creed and the memorandum establishing the Corps are available at the civilian personnel Web site at under “Top Army Initiatives.”

Establishment of the Corps is a result of a study conducted by the Army Training and Leadership Development Panel from August 2001 to February 2003. Through written and online surveys with civilians, focus-group sessions and personal interviews, an executive panel comprised of senior civilian and military subject-matter-experts concluded the needs and concerns of Army civilians.

The study also resulted in the November 2004 establishment of the Civilian Advisory Board, which serves as an advocate for civilian matters raised to the Army chief of staff.
