    The leadership role as a non-commissioned officer is in such great contrast to the typical leadership role of an aviation Warrant Officer.

    Promotion Boards Promotions are a very sensitive subject to military personnel that are getting looked at for the next level. In the Army we use Non-Commissioned Officer Evaluation Report (NCOER) this is how NCO’s get rated. The issue with the promotion boards is that the people that are on the board do not know you. They do not know if you are good worker or if just are lazy. There is not one set standard that they judge you by. For example there are five Sergeant Majors on the board each one…

For example,…

    Through this simple, yet profound, oath we enter into a complex bond of servitude which defines the entirety of our careers. As we move up from Soldiers to Non-commissioned officers, creeds and doctrine further supplement our oath and reinforce this bond.

The traditional marks of success: money, glory,…
