If they have not been properly informed, they may not consider the Chemical Branch and we may not get a chance to discuss available opportunities. We are sending letters and e-mails to these cadets and encouraging recent Basic Offcer Leadership Course graduates to return to their campuses to interact with the cadets. We also challenge members of the Corps who are out in the feld to engage their alma maters and local ROTC populations to help spread the word. ROTC programs welcome those who reach out to cadets. The PDO can provide support, including briefng products, brochures, and novelty items. Please contact the PDO at (573) 563-7374 with your requests. Chemical Corps Facebook® Page The Chemical Corps Facebook page at is intended to provide a means for current members of the Corps to receive news, provide feedback, connect with each other, and recognize that they are part of a unique and outstanding organization. It also provides prospective members with a vehicle to view and gather information and to familiarize themselves with the Chemical Corps in a unique way. As we reach out to cadets, we promote this page, which has been linked to information about several ROTC programs. If you haven't already done so, visit the page and "like" it so that you may share in the information.

Due to the large number of requirements at the Army Publishing Directorate, an authenticated publication is not expected until late 2014. Therefore, the USACBRNS commandant has signed and approved an implementation memorandum authorizing the fnal approved draft to be incorporated into Army institutional training and implemented by Army forces and installations. However, the fnal approved draft cannot be reproduced since it is not an offcial Department of the Army publication until it is authenticated and published by the Army Publishing Directorate.
