They "define the force" (force development) and "build the force" (force integration) in support of the Warfighter.They are self-disciplined strategic thinkers. Most of all, FA50 officers are problem solvers. The Proponent for Functional Area 50 is the Army Deputy Chief of Staff, G-8. The Executive Agent is the Director, Force Development.

"Effective 1 August 2020, the requirement for officer, warrant officer and enlisted selection boards to include the DA Photo as part of the board file is suspended. Data that identifies a Soldier’s race, ethnicity, and gender on the Officer Record Brief and the Enlisted Record Brief will be redacted as a part of the board file. These changes will help ensure that selection boards are as fair and impartial as possible." - Secretary of the U.S. Army Ryan McCarthy and Chief of Staff, Army, Gen. James McConville.

#TalentManagement #COVID19
Latest changes regarding COVID-19 travel restrictions:

Senior commanders will certify an installation, facility or location has met conditions to lower travel and movement restrictions using the COVID-19 transition framework.

If a service member’s (SM) duty station is certified unrestricted, SM is authorized to travel from, to and through locations also certified as unrestricted.

Travel, including leave for Soldiers, from, to and through restricted locations requires exception to policy (ETP) by the first general officer or senior executive service in the SM’s chain of command.

Approval authorities may grant ETP’s for mission essential travel; travel necessary for humanitarian reasons; and/or warranted due to extreme hardship.

PME programs are exempt from travel restrictions and do not require an ETP to attend in either a PCS or TDY status.

The exemption applies to PME including officer training and education programs, NCOPD systems, functional and specialty training programs, civilian training, education, and development programs and advanced education programs as outlined in AR 350-1 and AR 621-1. This includes all Special Operations Forces (SOF) force generation activities such as assessment, selection, permanent change of station or temporary duty travel for training associated with qualifications to enter into a Special Operations career field, and follow-on travel to the first duty station for personnel assigned to SOCOM units.

The exemption also applies to reclassification training.

The democratic process can be loud and messy. The military’s policy is to stay out of politics. This separation provides important checks on power. Thus, any activity that may be reasonably viewed as directly or indirectly associating DoD, or any component or personnel of DoD, with a partisan political activity -- or is otherwise contrary to the spirit and intention of our policy guidance -- must be avoided.
