PERSCOM and AR-PERSCOM merge. (News).
The merger is one of several recommendations made by an Army-level human resources integrated process team (HRIPT) that convened last year. Former Secretary of the Army Thomas E. White later approved these recommendations. The HRIPT recommendations are far-reaching and complex and involve the active Army, Army National Guard, Army Reserve, civilian employees, and contractors.
"The organizational realignment of PERSCOM and AR-PERSCOM is a historical milestone in Army Transformation," said Lieutenant General James R. Helmly, the Chief of Army Reserve. "This integration will serve as the foundation for changing the manner in which we care for the Army's most valuable resource and foundation, its people."
PERSCOM and AR-PERSCOM will retain their respective names and unit insignia until a date to be determined, Army officials said.
