Infomation about the Military Order of Saint Christopher

The Military Order of Saint Christopher

During TC Week 98, the Chief of Transportation approved the Military Order of Saint Christopher to recognize those individuals who have made significant contributions to the U.S. Army Transportation Corps. The Order of Saint Christopher was established with two levels, the Ancient Order and the Honorable Order.

The Ancient Order

The Ancient Order of Saint Christopher is the more distinguished of the two levels of the Military Order of Saint Christopher. The Ancient Order is reserved for those few individuals whose careers embody outstanding achievements and accomplishments in the spirit, dignity, and sense of sacrifice and commitment epitomized by Saint Christopher.

All Transporters (Active, Reserve, National Guard, DA Civilians and Retired) and any individuals whose actions and service contributed to the success of the Transportation Corps and who have performed conspicuous, long-term service for or on behalf of the Transportation Corps (which so singularly distinguishes the individual as a contributor to the Transportation Corps that they have few peers) are eligible for the Ancient Order. Membership in the Transportation Corps Regimental Association (TCRA) is a prerequisite. As an exception to policy, the Chief of Transportation (HCOR may approve the Ancient Order of Saint Christopher for individuals who are not members of the Regiment, but who have made significant contributions to the Transportation Corps. In this case only is TCRA membership not a prerequisite.

The awarding of the Ancient Order of Saint Christopher requires the approval of the Honorary Colonel of the Regiment (HCOR). The HCOR may approve, disapprove or downgrade the nomination to the Honorable Order as appropriate. It is intended that the induction ceremony take place in conjunction with an official function; e.g., Dining In/Out, or similar dignified ceremony or event.

The Honorable Order

The Honorable Order of Saint Christopher recognizes those individuals who have demonstrated the highest standards of integrity and moral character; displayed an outstanding degree of professional competence; and served the Transportation Corps with selflessness.

All Transporters (Active, Reserve, National Guard, DA Civilians and Retired) and any individual whose actions and service contributed to the promotion of the Transportation Corps in ways that stand out in the eyes of the recipient’s superiors, subordinates and peers alike, are eligible for the Honorable Order. Membership in the TCRA is a prerequisite. The award authority for the Honorable Order of Saint Christopher is delegated to Transportation Corps Colonel or above commanders who may approve the award for personnel in or associated with their commands. When there is no Transportation Corps commander available, the HCOR is the approval authority. The induction ceremony should take place in conjunction with an official function; e.g., Dining In/Out, or similar dignified ceremony or event.
