The Armor Regimental Guide is to provide information on current policies and procedures regarding the Regimental System for Armor Soldiers (active and reserve component).The purposes of the Regimental System are to enhance combat effectiveness through a framework that provides the opportunity for affiliation, develop loyalty and commitment, foster an extended sense of belonging, improve unit esprit, and institutionalize the war fighting ethos. It was developed to include the Total Armor Force, both active and reserve components, and offer the opportunity for long-term identification with a regiment throughout a Soldier’s career.
Question: What are the requirements that a Soldier must complete to be considered Branch Developed or KD complete?
Answer: A See DA Pam 600-25 Chapter 10 and DA Pam 600-3 Chapter 9.
Enlisted Soldiers must serve 24 months or more (whether in a garrison or deployed environment, or a combination of both) in a Critical Leadership Position.
Critical Leadership time is accumulated, regardless of breaks in service, so long as time served was/is rated and documented by NCOERs that list the Principle Duty Title of the NCO as the Critical
Leadership Position commensurate with their rank and grade. Time spent at the next higher Critical Leadership Position counts towards leadership development time at the current grade, so long as the
NCOER reflects the next higher Critical Leadership Position under Principle Duty Title.
Officers must serve 12-24 months in Company Command for CPTs and 12-24 months in Battalion/Brigade S-3 or XO positions for MAJ. See DA Pam 600-3, Chapter 9 for
additional KD information.
