Warrant Officer Information
"The most successful Warrant Officers are the ones who act as the unit Ombudsman -- for maintenance, logistics, personnel, and training. They understand the standards, procedures, and processes, and are tireless in pursuit of mission accomplishment. The best Warrant Officers are part of a vast professional and personal network that can be relied upon 24/7 to work issues. Their advice, recommendations, and counsel is unvarnished, and they are as at ease working with Privates and 2LT's as they are with CSMs and Generals.”
