The Integrated Personnel and Pay System – Army (IPPS-A) is a revolutionary Army Human Resources (HR) system that enables Army HR professionals’ with the ability to maintain accurate accountability of Army personnel (Active, National Guard and Reserve), provides HR personnel and leaders with comprehensive tools for talent management and allows for an audit capability for pay and benefits. The slogan for IPPS-A is “One Soldier, One Record, One Army” thus the genesis of the 1.1.1 miles.  IPPS-A delivers and integrates personnel and pay across all components and utilizes current technologies to deliver service and support to the Army’s most valuable resource: the Soldier and their family!

Although there is no locked timeline to finish, the event coordinator is challenging all participants to complete the 111 Mile VR within 90 days from our “go live” date (03 August 2020).  This is easy, so let’s accept the challenge and do it!  1st, 2nd and 3rd place for both male/female categories that register for the 111 Mile Challenge will receive an exclusive AGCRA placement certificate. See the race rules here.

You can run, walk or use a combination of approved exercises to complete the AGCRA 5K/111 Mile Challenge anytime and anywhere! It’s Your Race at Your Pace! It’s not about how fast you finish, unless you are competing to get an AGCRA Placement Certificate.  It’s about finishing based on your ability! Participants in the AGCRA virtual race earn an incredible one of a kind medal/race Bib for themselves while positively impacting the AGCRA community through the Scholarship program!

Where in the World is COL (Ret) Bob Murphy?

Again, 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.  After seeing COL (Ret) Nick Monje and his wife Dianne in China, COL (Ret) Bob Murphy and his wife Gayl accepted the challenge to carry the AGCRA logo to another exotic place… so where in the world are they?

Answer – the Panama Canal.

COL (Ret) Bob Murphy and his wife Gayl approach the Panama Canal shortly after 6 AM going under the Bridge of the Americas, which is the span for the Pan American Highway connecting Panama to Alaska.
On the Caribbean/Atlantic end of the Panama Canal, COL (Ret) Bob and Gayl Murphy exit the last canal lock. You can see the rolling door closing. In the background is a container ship inside the first of the Atlantic locks. Note the difference in the water levels as we have been lowered to meet the Caribbean/Atlantic.
Our last look at the Canal as we pass under the Atlantic Bridge.

Editor’s Note – COL (Ret) Bob Murphy is an AG Corps Hall of Fame Inductee, Class of 2019, and a Distinguished Member of the AG Corps.  COL (Ret) Murphy culminated his 28-year military career as the Deputy Chief of Staff, G1 for the U.S. Army Information Systems Command.  During his time in uniform, he served and deployed to three separate conflicts.
