To ensure military members have easy, timely access to critical personnel announcements, MyCG is publishing ALCGPSC, ALCGOFF and ALCGENL messages as articles. Once the issue is resolved, MyCG will go back to our normal practice of publishing modern, plain-language news articles on the homepage, with personnel messages autopopulating on the appropriate audience pages.
