I used to view chief petty officer as nothing more than a rank that I would achieve as I worked my way up the ladder to higher positions within staff. I’ll admit to being a bit puzzled as to why the c/PCPO’s went through such a seemingly strenuous transition when their reward was simply making chief. Lately I’ve come to realize that yes, all you get out of the c/PCPO transition is the rank of chief, but that chief includes much more than the title of being a chief. Being a chief means you are willing to take charge of a higher level of responsibility, and coinciding with that, being able to lead a larger unit of people. Being chief means that you understand how to properly lead those who rely on you. Chiefs’ work together to make up the higher ranks of staff that plan how the unit is to run, but they also lead the individual cadets. A chief, by definition of being a higher rank, is expected to set an example for other cadets to learn by. Chiefs also select chiefs to lead the unit when they have left, accepting both the responsibility of the unit at present, and who will manage it in the future.
Becoming a 2nd Lieutenant: Applying the Lessons from Platoon Leader Zach Van Dyke Wheaton College RTB Becoming a 2nd Lieutenant: Applying the Lessons from Platoon Leader James R. McDonough sets a spectacular example of what it is to be a second lieutenant in the United States Army and what it is truly like to lead a group of enlisted soldiers for the first time. Lieutenant McDonough, a graduate of West Point, was deployed as a platoon leader in a small fort with the mission of holding a Vietnamese village out of the hands of the Viet Cong. When he arrived, Lieutenant McDonough discovered that the former Lieutenant and platoon leader of the 2d Platoon, Bravo Company, 4th Battalion, 503d Infantry (Airborne) hardly ever left his

What does ot mean to me what a marine NCO is First off i would like to state a well known quote known by all Marines, "Non Commissioned Officers (NCO's) are the backbone of the United States Marine Corps." Without the NCO's the Marine Corps could not function. This quote alone holds a great deal of history as well as gives a brief discription of what a Marine NCO truely is.
Air Force Staff Sergeant Brian McElroy and Tech Sergeant Jason L. Norton were military police officers. Unfortunately, they are unable to extend their military service. Their lives were tragically taken.

Sergeant Major Valliant, of the 82nd Airborne, had embedded himself with the scout platoon that was heading for Washington DC. They were being flown up north in a C-17 along with two Bradley’s and a Humvee. This was meant to supplement the Armor platoon from 11th ACR out of Fort Irwin and they would come under the command of 3rd Infantry Regiment. The mission was, along with an infantry platoon from the 3rd were to maneuver outside of the fifty mile radius north of the capital. The powers that be, knew that Colonel Magnus and his army were a little over a hundred miles away. They wanted to do their best to cut that distance in half.
EWhen I was younger I was in the Boy Scouts of America striving for the rank of Eagle Scout I met an Army National Guard Colonel that would set an example of leadership, a bad one. I was a Boy Scout many years but had to limit my attending meetings over the course of my junior year of high school and over the course of my absence a new Scout Master had come to our troop, the aforementioned Colonel. Prior to this man I had the pleasure of knowing several excellent leaders and it was quite the shock to see our once massive troop slowly dwindle.
For over 6 months, HM2 Malcom worked side-by-side with me at SEAL Team 18. As Medical Department Head, I could not have asked for a more consummate professional or attentive Corpsman. He has proved himself both in his civilian employment and within in the unit to be a quick, intelligent, and dependable individual. While assigned to the unit, he has been a prime example of the Navy Core Values.
Would you quit working for something you love if it was just “too hard”? If someone truly believes in a cause then they would give everything to achieve it right? Would you just like to blend in with the crowd or do you want to stick out? If you answered yes to any of the previous questions then you wouldn’t have the characteristics of either a Navy SEAL or Marine. Answering no to all the questions may also not be enough to be either a SEAL or Marine. Not many people know this but Navy SEALs undergo the most rigorous military training known to man. SEAL training is considered harder than any other nation’s Special Forces training. Likewise, the United States Marine Corps (USMC), the most revered branch of the military, also trains hard

47). McDonough spared himself from nothing as time after time he would rotate through every third patrol as squads conducted patrols and midnight ambushes. Whether McDonough’s men knew it or not, he studied them attentively. McDonough (1985) describes his interaction with his men “I sat and listened to their stories, their hopes, their gripes. I tried not to speak about myself” (pg. 75). The time that LTC McDonough took to learn about his men would play a key role on building his trust and faith in his men as he went out on patrols with them. He was able to describe his squad leaders and platoon sergeant with great detail. He knew about their strengths and weaknesses and was able to adapt his leadership style and presence depending on which NCO he was patrolling with. Another example of his empathetic and servitude leadership style was the fact that he let his platoon sergeant bunk in the sand bagged bunker McDonough (1985) explains “By right of rank, I would have had the bunker for my own quarters had I wanted it… It was too plush in comparison to what the men had” (pg. 99). It truly amazes me that LTC McDonough seemed to have grasped the concept of what it means to be an effective leader, and I truly believe that his treatment of his men, and the way that he conducted himself was a key part in his success during the
