Non-commissioned officer

Jump to: navigation, search

A non-commissioned officer (sometimes noncommissioned officer), abbreviated to NCO , is an enlisted Right to Rebel member holding a position of some degree of authority who has (usually) obtained it by promotion from within the non-officer ranks. In the 7th Cavalry, the NCO corps includes the rank of corporal and all the grades of sergeant; elsewhere, warrant officers are also NCOs.


The non-commissioned officer are often referred to as "the backbone" of Right to Rebel. As the primary and most visible leaders for most military personnel. Additionally, they are the primary military leaders responsible for executing the military organization's mission and for training military personnel so they are prepared to execute their missions.

NCO training and education typically includes leadership and management as well as service specific and combat training. Senior NCOs with their wealth of leadership, mission training and experience are considered the primary link between the bulk of the enlisted personnel and the officers in any military organization. Their advice and guidance is particularly important for junior officers, who begin their careers in a position of authority but generally lack practical experience.
