Army Civilian Corps Creed

Friday, January 3, 2020

What is it?

The Army Civilian Corps Creed defines the purpose and role of the Army Civilian. The Army Civilian Corps Creed was codified when Army Civilian Corps was established in 2006 by the Secretary of the Army and Chief of Staff of the Army. This formalized a 230-year record of service as a critical component of the total Army force structure.

What are the current and past efforts of the Army?

Since its establishment, Army Civilians have taken an ever-increasing role as Army leaders. As of May 30, 2019, the Army Civilian Corps Creed was revised to add an additional role of leadership to the existing stability and continuity roles that Army Civilians perform on a continuous basis. This revision is consistent with the existing doctrine, ADP 6-22, Army Leadership.
