MOS 42H—Senior Human Resources Officer

In the Adjutant General's Corps, all Lieutenants and Captains will be designated as MOS 42B—Human Resources Officer. For officers in the ranks of Major and above, they will become a Senior Human Resources Officer (MOS 42H).

Senior Human Resources Officer (MOS 42H) Description / Major Duties:

An Adjutant General Officer is responsible for providing personnel support that affect Soldiers’ overall welfare and well being, while assisting commanders by accounting for and keeping Soldiers combat-ready. In many cases, the duties of an Adjutant General Officer are very similar to the function of a high-level human resources executive in the civilian world.

The Senior Human Resources Officer will have similar duties but will receive increasing amounts of responsibility as they get promoted up the ranks.
