Many changes were implemented after WWII as well as agencies created, such as the United States Air Force. However, even though the Air Force was created after WWII it has not stayed the same, and has grown and evolved with the world. Executive Orders have not updated the DoD regulation with the earliest rendition dated 18 September 1969 which is an Army regulation and not DoD. The most recent update, renumbering and name change is reflected as Army Regulation 380-67, Personnel Security Program dated 7 October 1988. With the execution of Executive Order (E.O.) 10450 in 1953, three concerns overlapped which were loyalty, suitability for employment, and maintaining the security of classified information. The onset of the Cold War made it necessary to concentrate efforts on thwarting federal employees from spying for, our then defined enemy, the Soviet Union. That all led to the obsession with an applicant’s vow to and links with international communism (Herbig, 2011). The initial standards that accompanied this E.O. were and still are called Adjudicative Guidelines.
These Adjudicative Guidelines are used to evaluate each applicant’s eligibility for access to classified or sensitive information and for Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI) and are also used to guide adjudicators in evaluating information gathered during an applicant’s background investigation
