Assistant Chief of Staff, G-1 (Personnel)

Mission: The United States Army Japan (USARJ) and I Corps (Forward) G-1 Team provides tactical through strategic level of war Human Resources (HR) expertise, advice, and support to the Commanding General (CG) USARJ and commanders and staffs on all matters concerning U.S. military and U.S. Department of the Army Civilians (DACs) and their Families and USARJ’s Local National Employee (LNE) workforce. The G-1 deploys a personnel package as a part of a forward-stationed command and control Sustainment Cell and successfully conducts missions under combat, humanitarian, and disaster conditions. The G-1 also conducts bilateral engagement and builds interoperability with the Ground Staff Office (GSO) Personnel Department and in support of the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force (JGSDF).

Vision: Soldiers, DACs and LNEs who serve with USARJ and I Corps (Forward) G-1 Team are treated with dignity and respect, guided by fair and consistent leadership, policies and regulations, and given opportunities to learn, grow, and develop as professionals and people. The combined G-1 Team sets the conditions for other USARJ and I Corps (Forward) Soldiers, civilian employees, and family members to make USARJ the best place in our Army to serve and live by executing Human Resource practices so our command recruits, selects, trains, develops, compensates, and retains valued teammates and family members. The G-1 Team also further develops an already strong bilateral professional relationship with our counterparts in the JGSDF GSO Personnel Department to ensure transparency and interoperability in the event of a Humanitarian Assistance or Disaster Relief (HA/DR) mission.
