What is a Warrant Officer?
In 1985, the Department of the Army developed a clear and concise definition which encompasses all warrant officer specialties.
An officer appointed by warrant by the Secretary of the Army, based upon a sound level of technical and tactical competence. The warrant officer is the highly specialized expert and trainer who, by gaining progressive levels of expertise and leadership, operates, maintains, administers, and manages the Army's equipment, support activities, or technical systems for an entire career.
