Welcome to the AMEDD Personnel Proponent Directorate, more commonly known as APPD. We are located at Fort Sam Houston.

About Us

We are the link between manpower and human resources...or to put it another way...we develop recommendations for spaces (positions) that turn into faces (Soldiers/employees).

Our Mission

We  analyze, synchronize, and integrate AMEDD Personnel Development System life cycle management functions and force structure design with Doctrine, Organization, Training, Materiel, Leadership/Education, Personnel and Facilities (DOTMLPF) changes

Our Vision

We are the link in building tomorrow`s AMEDD.
