Star Army Personnel Command started YE 21 when the Star Army was formed. Originally, it was called Star Army Personnel Management and later it changed to Star Army Personnel Management Administration.

In YE 35, Star Army Personnel Management moved its headquarters to Fort Minori Reserve Center on Nataria.

In YE 36, its name was shortened to Star Army Personnel for the sake of simplicity.

In YE 41, the Star Army started calling this division Star Army Personnel Command (again) to prevent confusion between “Star Army Personnel” and “Star Army personnel.” That year, Shôshô Ketsurui Hanako became the acting Deputy Director of Star Army Personnel Command. During this time, Hanako suggested the motto “All Hands In Good Hands” for the Star Army Personnel Command, which was accepted.

In late YE 42, Ketsurui-Chinomai Minori retired and Hanako became the new director1). Hanako immediately created PEARL to expedite recovery of missing soldiers.

In YE 43, Director Hanako authorized the formation of Task Force 1 for PEARL's use2).

In YE 45, Shôshô Ise Katae became Deputy Director of Star Army Personnel. That year, Star Army Personnel command created the Third Mishhuvurthyar War Service Ribbon, placed thousands of soldiers, and issued a huge amount of promotions.
