For several years, the U.S. Armys Officer Personnel Management Division OPMD has provided all OPMD managed officers with a personnel information guide called the Red Book. This guide contains information papers that are updated annually on subjects frequently discussed among the Officer Corps. It provides a quick, desktop reference for some of the special programs the Army offers at different stages of an OPMD officers careers. Since chaplains have a different life cycle of professional development and are managed separately from the Officer Personnel Management System OPMS, the Red Book information is not always applicable. Therefore, a chaplain-unique, personnel information guide is needed for both chaplains and their predominantly OPMD commanders. Though the Chaplaincy has at one time had such a guide, it has become extremely outdated, and largely unavailable. This project, then, is an updated, vastly refocused reference on the personnel management and career development philosophy of the U.S. Army Chaplaincy. It is an information guide for chaplains and their commanders on issues unique to chaplain professional development and career management.
