According to their website, the AG Corps is one of the oldest existing branches in the U.S. Army – second only to the Infantry. Their functionality throughout the years has proven to be vital to not only the success of Soldiers, but almost just as important, their moral.
“Have you ever spoken to a Soldier or witnessed the look on their face when they missed cutoff because of missing documentation,” asked Sgt. Maj. Jesse E. Ruth, G1 sergeant major, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault). “Or scramble to figure out what they are going to be when they received a “no pay due” leave and earning statement? The AG profession, when performed correctly, is there to ensure things like that don’t happen.”
