Personnel Manual Break-up
The PERSMAN has been replaced by 12 new Manuals or Instructions, loosely
aligned with the former chapters in the PERSMAN.
This change will improve download speeds, reduce bandwidth usage, and more
importantly, allow the Office of Military Policy to promulgate updates in a
more timely fashion.
These manuals include numerous changes including the repeal of Don’t
Ask, Don’t Tell. Other policy changes made
after February 2011 will be incorporated in future updates. The new
directives will incorporate Modernization organizational changes as well as
policy changes previously announced by Decision Memos and ALCOASTs.
Additional information and tools to aid users during the transition will be
maintained on this website.
