The Personnel System of the United States Army, Vol. 1

Excerpt from The Personnel System of the United States Army, Vol. 1: History of the Personnel System The great world war differs from all other wars not merely in the number of individuals involved but even more in the number of technicians demanded. Because of the haste in creating the Army it was impossible to develop the experts and accordingly those already possessing such technical skill were, when properly assigned, of the greatest value to the new Army. The importance of personnel work was early recognized and the development of an adequate personnel system for the United States Army entrusted to a group of specialists who were called by the Secretary of War, The Committee on Classification of Personnel in the Army but who worked in the early days directly under my jurisdiction. The sys tem worked out by this group is probably the most effective now in existence. Its purpose is (l) to secure a contented and efficient army by placing each enlisted man where he has the opportunity to make the most of his talent and skill; (2) to commission, assign and promote officers on merit and (3) to simplify the procedure of discovering talent and assigning it where most needed.
