The U.S. Army has employed civilians since 1776 in support of men and women in uniform.
The Department of Defense is America's oldest, largest, busiest and most successful "company".
Today, with over 25,000 civilian employees, the Army is the Department of Defense's largest
Federal employer. For more information, visit the
Civilian Personnel On-Line (CPOL) website, the
U.S. Office of Personnel Management website

The Department of the Army strives to ensure equal opportunity in all aspects of
employment for Army civilian employees and applicants for employment. Equal employment
opportunity policies for minorities, women, and handicapped individuals are implemented by aggressive
affirmative action programs that are designed to meet locally established goals and objectives.
Employment policies and practices in the Department of the Army are free from unlawful discrimination
based on race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, or handicap. The basic principle of
equal employment opportunity underlies all aspects of the civilian personnel management program
in the Army.
