On August 17, we commemorate the anniversary of the U.S. Army Civil Affairs Regiment.

Civil Affairs is a unique capability that can achieve the decisive advantage in places where overwhelming firepower isn't enough for victory. Versatile, innovative, and highly-trained, Civil Affairs Soldiers are the Special Operations community's warrior-diplomats.
