Please note the following:
- As a Nonprofit Organization (a.k.a., Private Organization), AGCRA is not an official U.S. government, nor Army agency.
- Private Organizations, such as AGCRA, come under the purview of AR 210-22, Private Organizations on Department of the Army Installations.
- AGCRA will retain the term “Regimental” in its title for historical purposes as the Association was founded in 1987. However, the re-publication of AR 870-21, The U.S. Army Regimental System, on 13 April 2017, officially dropped the term “Regiment” for the AG Corps. The AG Corps is now listed as a separate “Corps” within the regulation.
