OAA Strengths

As a part of the Army team, we know that enabling the Army Staff in their support to the warfighter - through our dedicated service and the responsible management of resources - validates us as a relevant and ready leader in these extraordinary times. We are driven to provide superior service and are steadfast in upholding the Army values. This total commitment to service and continuous improvement has established a strong foundation on which we continue to provide unwavering service and support to the Army and the Nation.

The Army Civilian Corps consists of experienced personnel committed to serving the Nations. Army civilians are an integral part of the Army team and are members of the executive branch of the federal government. They fill positions in staff and sustaining base operations that would otherwise have to be filled by military personnel. They provide mission-essential capability, stability and continuity during war and peace in support of the Soldier. Army civilians take their support mission person-ally. No different than their uniformed counterparts, Army civilians are committed to selfless service in the performance of their duties as illustrated in the Army Civilian Corps Creed.
