As the nation prepares to observe 230 years of independence on July 4, America's Army civilians celebrate the establishment of the new Army Civilian Corps.<br/><br/>The new name unifies civilians serving the Army, and "embodies the commitment of these dedicated individuals who serve as an integral part of our Army team," according to a June 19 memo jointly signed by Francis J. Harvey, Army Secretary, and Gen. Peter J. Schoomaker, Army Chief of Staff.<br/><br/>"Army civilians serve in all three theaters, and are deployed worldwide supporting the Army mission and the Global War on Terrorism,"Harvey and Schoomaker said. "As the Army's missions have become more complex, so have the roles of Army civilians."<br/><br/>More information on the Army Civilian Corps can be viewed by visiting the following web address:<br/><br/><a href = "http://acpol.army.mil/employment/about_civcorp.htm">http://acpol.army.mil/employment/about_civcorp.htm</a>
