Adjutant General's Corps Regimental Association

Renaming of the AG Corps Regimental Warrant Officer of the Year Award

Senior Army HR Leaders, AG Corps Retirees, and Friends of the AG Corps,

I am sending this announcement on behalf of COL (Ret) Robert L. Manning, President, Adjutant General’s Corps Regimental Association (AGCRA).

The National Executive Council (NEC) of the AGCRA approved renaming the AG Corps Regimental Warrant Officer of the Year Award.  Starting 23 June 2017, Warrant Officers selected as the Regimental Warrant Officer of the Year will now receive the CW5 Daniel J. Logan, Jr. Medal for Distinguished Achievement.  Winners were previously presented the LTG Timothy J. Maude Medal for Distinguished Achievement.

 The purpose of this award is to annually recognize an AG Corps Warrant Officer who best understands CW5 Logan’s contributions and values in his HR support of Soldiers, Commanders, Families, and the Army during the previous calendar year.  Any Branch 420 WO1 – CW3 Warrant Officer can compete for this award.  The nominee must be a member of the active Army, National Guard, or Army Reserve as of 30 June of each calendar year.  Nominations are due to the Adjutant General School each year by the first of February with the winner recognized at the National AG Ball in Columbia, SC.  This year’s award presentation is 23 June 2017 at the DoubleTree Hotel and Convention Center.  Award recipient’s photo will be displayed at the Adjutant General School and their name added to the plaque hanging in the AG Hall of Honor.  Award recipients will also be published in “1775”, the AGCRA Journal Magazine.

 CW5 Daniel J. Logan Jr., 1950 – 2016, was born April 12, 1950, in Scranton, PA.  He was a graduate of Bayley Ellard High School in Madison, NJ, as well as Georgia Military College in Milledgeville, GA.  CW5 Logan served his country in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1968 through 1971, and then with the U.S. Army from 1971 through 2003.  In 2002, he was appointed as the first senior Warrant Officer adviser to the Chief of Staff, Army (CSA).  When he retired from the Army as the Assistant Executive Officer to the CSA, he continued his career as a civilian and retired in 2013 as the Assistant Chief of Staff to the Secretary, Department of Veteran Affairs.  With his occupation, CW5 Logan traveled extensively throughout the country and the world, having served in many countries over the years.  He was also inducted into the U.S. Army Adjutant General’s Corps Hall of Fame, Class of 2012.

2017 AGCRA Scholarship Program

We had another great year for the AG Corps Regimental Association and the entire Army HR team.  We continue to grow AGCRA membership each month and are as large as we’ve ever been.  Most of the credit goes to all of you and your great AGCRA Chapter Teams.

It is also time to execute the 7th annual AGCRA Scholarship Program.  At the National AG Ball on 23 June 2017, we intend to announce our six new $1,000 AGCRA scholarships winners.  Our time is limited to board and select from these superstars, so we need your help, support and push to get the scholarship application packets submitted no later than 1 May 2017.  

The details for AGCRA Scholarship Program applications are on the attachment MOI, and will also be published to all members via the S1Net, our AGCRA website, AG School website, and the AGCRA Facebook Page.  We are counting on you and your Chapter Team to get the word out so all of our members have the opportunity to take advantage of these scholarships for the upcoming school year.

Again, thanks for all your great work and support!
