AGCRA has a goal of touching all corners of the Army, from South Korea, Alaska, Hawaii, the Continental U.S., Europe, the Middle East, and all the way to Afghanistan. But why stop there, let’s take AGCRA global! So we asked COL (Ret) Nick Monje and his wife Dianne to carry the AGCRA logos to even more exotic places… so where in the world are they?
That’s right, Nick and Dianne recently returned from China. Nick told us, “While China was a wonderfully exciting place to visit – the history, culture, people, sights, sounds and food, we were unable to communicate with the outside world – China restricts Google, Gmail, and Social Media.” He added, “The Chinese government has such restrictions – the people only know what the communist government wants them to know… so it’s great to be back in the USA, where we remain the greatest country in the world!
The photos above are Nick and Dianne in Tian’anamen Square and at the Great Wall of China. Nick and Dianne are planning another overseas trip in early 2020. So where will they end up next?
Now it’s your turn… take a photo of yourself with the AGCRA logo at a unique location, be it CONUS or OCONUS, and send it to Adjutant@agcra.com and we’ll share it with our members.
Editor’s Note – COL (Ret) Nick Monje is an AG Corps Hall of Fame Inductee, Class of 2011, and a Distinguished Member of the AG Corps. His 25 year Army career included command and senior AG leadership assignments and culminated with duties as the Commander/Director, Personnel Information Systems Command and Special Assistant, Office of the DCSPER, The Pentagon. COL (Ret) Monje retired from the Army on 1 October 1998.

In case you weren’t aware, the AG Corps has its own March. In 1987 at Fort Benjamin Harrison, IN, the Army designated the AG Corps as a Regiment. At the time, COL Frank C. Foster, Jr. was the Chief of the Corps and set about to create an AG Corps Regimental March. CPT William A. Foss came up with the music and COL Foster provided the words; hence, the AG Corps Regimental March was born.
For your use and download we have two versions of the March – with words and with music only. The two versions are provided below. AGCRA thanks LTC (Ret) Laura Bozeman and CW5 (Ret) Dave Ratliff for the two versions of the AG Corps March below.
Note – the re-publication of AR 870-21, The U.S. Army Regimental System on 13 April 2017, officially dropped the term “Regiment” for the AG Corps. The AG Corps is now listed as a separate “Corps” within the regulation, so the AG Corps Regimental March is now the AG Corps March.
Additionally, AGCRA will retain the term “Regiment” in its title for historical purposes as the Association was founded in 1987.
