Greetings from the Home of the AG Corps, Fort Jackson, South Carolina.  Wow!  Most of us probably never thought that we would experience the many challenges brought on by COVID-19, but the Army and the AG Corps continue to meet these tremendous challenges head-on. 

It is with great pleasure that we bring you the latest issue of 1775 which features many articles of how AG Corps Soldiers have adapted and ultimately persevered through the countless technical and administrative challenges encountered with telework, masks, and social distancing.  Like all Army operations, there are lessons to be learned and SOPs to rewrite.

We hope you enjoy this edition of 1775 and solicit your comments and feedback at Magazine@agcra.com.

Special thanks to MAJ James Gerling and AGCCC Class 002-20 for the front cover of this edition.

1775 – 2019 Summer

Members may login to view the issue PDF.

Greetings from the Home of the AG, Fort Jackson, South Carolina.  It is with great pleasure that we bring you the latest issue of 1775.  This issue is dedicated to the G-1 Teams from ACC to Division level.  We want to thank LTC Randy Lefebvre, G-1, 82d Airborne Division and his team for spearheading this issue’s theme as well as all those who contributed to this issue.  We also hope you enjoy the retro cover.  It is a facsimile of the actual July 1943 issue of The Bulletin magazine published in the middle of World War II (1941-1945).

The Bulletin was the official magazine of the Adjutant General School more than 76 years ago.  The cover was used with permission of the current AG School Commandant, COL Michael McTigue, who loaned us the magazine from his personal collection.  The cover was fitting then, and it is appropriate now as we shape our current force.  The Army continues to move away from irregular warfare in preparation for Large Scale Combat Operations against great power competition.  The G-1s throughout the Army are key to the Commander’s understanding of accurate and timely strength reporting.  The effective use of combat power is the key to success.  And, to quote the 40th Chief of Staff, Army, GEN James McConville, “Winning Matters!”

“IPPS-A is here!”  Greetings all.  We have a tremendous opportunity to witness the fielding of an HR system that is more than twenty years in the making.  Simply stated, IPPS-A is a unique HR tool that takes advantage of existing commercial off the shelf windows-based software, ensuring that the Army operates using  the most accurate and auditable data.

This issue draws heavily on the experts fielding IPPS-A and feature articles from the Project Manager, and the Director,
FMD, G1 as well as the dedicated Soldiers, Army Civilians and contractors who in some cases, have put their lives on hold in order to ensure the successful fielding.  It is an honor to help educate and spread the word about this powerful
tool in the Army’s arsenal as we progress towards the Army of 2028.

We hope you enjoy this edition of 1775 and solicit your comments and feedback at magazine@agcra.com.
