Are you looking for a Challenge? Looking for an innovative organization and the opportunity to learn and grow professionally? We are seeking a Command Historian to perform duties for the XVIII Airborne Corps Chief of Staff Office.

I’ve never heard of Terrestris. What do you do?

At Terrestris, we leverage technology to create better mission outcomes through better human performance. We form strong client and team relationships through transparency and strive to create an environment where our team can let their excellence shine through. By finding, developing, and incorporating new ideas, we provide memorable services. Rooted in the USMC values of honor, courage, and commitment, Terrestris seeks to deliver extraordinary value to the American people by helping the Government become more efficient and effective.

So, what will the Command Historian at Terrestris do?

Big picture, You will provide Command History documentation support to the XVIII Airborne Corps. The XVIII Airborne Corps maintains an archive of documents in several media pertaining to The XVIII Airborne Corps, its major subordinate activities, its major missions, and Fort Liberty, North Carolina. This archive enables the History Office to perform its other regulatory missions such as: documenting the activities and accomplishments of XVIII Airborne Corps; providing accurate historical research and analysis support to the Commanding General and his staff; and responding to historical inquiries. The Secretary of the Army executes these missions as designated in ATP 1-20 (Military History Operations). It is clear that historical data is lost in the absence of a Command Historian. Accurately documenting and publicizing the actions of an Army Corps requires skilled and dedicated manpower, otherwise unavailable to the XVIII Airborne Corps Chief of Staff Office.

What does a typical day look like for the Command Historian?

You will:

  • · Integrate the material into the archive, analyze and supervise the movement of documents from their current location at the archival office to the headquarters for their processing.
  • · Appraise the material for inclusion in the archive.
  • · Supervise the disposal of records not selected for inclusion,
  • · Establish the format for the archive of material for inclusion in the archive.
  • · Preserve and maintain the records.
  • · Supervise the preparation of an archival catalog and other materials to assist researchers in surveying the collection for its contents.
  • · Supervise continued integration of the materials into the Command Historian’s unified format.
  • · Provide expertise at key record management and liaison meetings and orientations of the archive and retrieve specific documents from the XVIII Airborne Corps Fort Liberty Archive.
