Happy 245th birthday to the U.S. Army Chaplain Corps!

#CHC245 #ArmyChaplainCorps

Today marks the 245th birthday of the U.S. Army Chaplain Corps. Dating back to July 29, 1775, Chaplains joined the Army’s ranks after General George Washington insisted that Chaplains were essential to building the spiritual readiness of America’s Soldiers. Building on our historic past, we look toward a heroic future.

Please join us in congratulating Mr. Richard Bowman for graduating from the #CP26 Apprentice Program! Please see below for Richard's reflection on his time as an Apprentice.

"I completed my Apprenticeship at Joint Base Elmendorf – Richardson, with the U.S. Army Alaska (USARAK) G8 Manpower & Management Division. Beginning my career with a smaller organization like USARAK has allowed for a hands on initiation into the CP26 career field and an almost immediate application of the knowledge gained from coursework. During my Apprenticeship with USARAK, I was responsible for tracking changes to and updating the personnel and equipment for USARAK TDA and AUGTDAs, served as interim USARAK Government Travel Card Program Coordinator, and have assisted with Change Management Plans, Cost Benefit Analysis, Equipment Review and Validation Boards, Civilian Review Boards, and the Managers Internal Control Program.
While an Apprentice, I was able to attend training offered through Syracuse University, the Graduate School USA, Army Force Management School, and Army Logistics University. The two courses I benefited from the most were the Force Management Orientation Course and the Manpower Force Management Course. Both of these courses helped to better understand the “big picture” and how submissions at the 2 star level are processed and ultimately compete for resourcing.
The last two years of traditional course work and on the job training has provided an excellent opportunity to grow, learn from, and network with the force management community. As I begin the transition into my permanent position as Lead Management Analyst, I am extremely thankful for the opportunity to have trained and traveled with my fellow CP26 apprentices and careerists. Mission First, People Always."

Congratulations again, Richard! #CP26ApprenticeGraduation

#CP26Spotlight Second-year #CP26Apprentice Ms. Veronica (Ronnie) Gour recently completed a four-month developmental rotation with Office of the Deputy Commanding General, U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command.
Ronnie worked as a Special Assistant to the DCG. In this position she developed, coordinated, and published the HQ TRADOC battle rhythm as the staff's lead developer and integrator. She also served as the ODCG's lead for planning, researching, and execution of the DCG's social media communication plan as the Information and Engagement Coordinator. Her final responsibility was to create a digital filing system of example projects and templates for the next Apprentice to rotate in the Command Group. Ronnie said, her "goal was to instill confidence in the value of the Apprentice program within the Command Group so that future Apprentices could follow after me."
She reflected on her time with the Command Group as "a unique and valuable experience for CP26 Apprentices,"and that she, "was grateful to partake in this kind of high level professional development opportunity. There had never been an intern in the Command Group before which made the experience unique in the sense that we were not following a preset path but creating one."
Congratulations on your well-deserved recognition, Ronnie! Keep up the great work!

Congratulations to Ms. Nicole Maldonado for graduating from the #CP26 Apprentice Program! Please see below for Nicole's reflection on her time as an Apprentice.

"I was competitively selected for the CP26 DA Apprenticeship in July 2018. I’ve had the opportunity to travel and complete many courses required for the program. All courses were informative and conducive to my current position. The class that I found most challenging and stimulating was the Defense Resources Management Course, located in Monterey, California. I had the fantastic opportunity to complete a 60-day rotation with the Office of the Chief, Army Reserve (OCAR) in Fort Belvoir in the Force Management Division. I learned the various Force Management Concepts, Manpower Functions, and had overall great mentorship from great Management Analysts and Force Managers; Ms. Melissa McLawhten, Ms. Yolanda Lockwood, and Mr. Dave Youngblood, COL Callandrillo and many more. One of my most cherished moments as an Apprentice was the courses completed in Monterey, California. I enjoyed collaborating with foreign nationals and applying their real-life experiences to the course. Upon graduation, I will be working with U.S. Army Garrison Fort Belvoir in the Resource Management Division, Manpower and Agreements office. Overall, the Apprenticeship was a great 2-years, where I developed knowledge, friendships, but mostly the opportunity to become a great asset to the Department of Army."

Congratulations again, Nicole! #CP26ApprenticeGraduation

Congratulations to Ms. Shari Coleman for graduating from the #CP26 Apprentice Program! Please see below for Shari's reflection on her time as an Apprentice.

"I completed my Apprenticeship at Fort Gordon, GA in the Garrison Resource Management Office (GRMO), where I served as a Manpower Analyst, responsible for manning the personnel TDA, generating reports for ID-T and the Garrison ICA for last year’s MICP program. I’ve successfully completed training at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS), the Army Force Management School (AFMS), and Army Logistics University (ALU) covering Risk Management, Defense Resource Management, Manpower and Force Management, and more. Before the conclusion of my Apprenticeship, I completed a rotational assignment with USAMAA, attaining and developing the skills/knowledge necessary to conduct Manpower Studies and Change Management Plans.
My favorite experience was the Roundtable held at the Pentagon during both years of my Apprenticeship. The advice and dialogue in the Senior Leader Panels was priceless and has helped me develop into the analyst I am today. After my graduation, I will be working as a Manpower Analyst for USAG – Japan, at Camp Zama, Japan. I appreciate all that I’ve learned during this Apprenticeship, both personally and professionally, as well as the opportunities to attend training."

Congratulations again Shari!

We had the privilege and honor to host the Assistant Deputy Chief of Staff, G-1 and Functional Chief of Representative of Career Program 26, Mr. Roy Wallace in the most recent edition of our #VirtualApprenticeOrientation.

Mr. Wallace covered a multitude of topics during his brief and provided valuable insight to our Apprentices as they begin their careers as Department of the Army Civilians. One especially poignant and relevant point Mr. Wallace made that really stuck with the Apprentices was this, "Having a sense of humor provides you with the resiliency to thrive in an ever-changing environment, especially now while we face COVID-19."

Thank you for joining us, Mr. Wallace!
