What is it? Army civilians have a 230-year record of service and are a critical component of the Total Army Force Structure. The Army Civilian Corps Creed embodies the commitment of these dedicated individuals who serve as an integral part of the Army team.
What has the Army Done? The Army has combined the Civilian Corps Creed with the Warrior Ethos that establishes a set of principles by which every Department of the Army Civilian lives to support our Soldiers in the field. In a broader sense, the Warrior Ethos is a way of life that applies to our personal and professional lives as well. They define who we are and who we aspire to become.
What continued efforts does the Army have planned? The Army has established the U.S. Army Civilian Corps to recognize this body of citizens who play a critical role in keeping the U.S. Army ready to execute its mission.
Why is this important to the Army? There's a reason to have an army, and the reason to have an army as part of our Armed Forces, part of the Joint Team, is to defend our nation. The role of our U.S. Army Civilian Corps and its recognition as being a part of the team is clearly outlined in the Army Civilian Corps Creed.
