The Noncommissioned Officer and Petty Officer: Backbone of the Armed Forces

The Noncommissioned Officer and Petty Officer: Backbone of the Armed Forces published on

Authored by Department of Defense

To be a member of the United States Armed Forces-to wear the uniform of the Nation and the stripes, chevrons, or anchors of the military Services-is to continue a legacy of service, honor, and patriotism that transcends generations. Answering the call to serve is to join the long line of selfless patriots who make up the Profession of Arms. This profession does not belong solely to the United States. It stretches across borders and time to encompass a culture of service, expertise, and, in most cases, patriotism. Today, the Nation’s young men and women voluntarily take an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States and fall into formation with other proud and determined individuals who have answered the call to defend freedom. This splendid legacy, forged in crisis and enriched during times of peace, is deeply rooted in a time-tested warrior ethos. It is inspired by the notion of contributing to something larger, deeper, and more profound than one’s own self.
