    It means he is expected to be a leader and an example for other Soldiers.

    Basically, and NCO is a subordinate officer, with lessor authority than a CO. Sgt's are the opposite of officers. I'm sure you knew that, but you never know who reads these boards who happen to learn something new everyday

    A noncommissioned officer is an enlisted man or woman above a certain rank. In the Navy, E4 and above are called petty officers, or noncommissioned officers. They are not officers, but they do have more responsibilities than E3 and below, increasing as their rank increases. Hope that helps some!

    Basically, as I understand it, an NCO is an enlisted soldier at or above a certain rank. They are expected to be an example to the lower ranked guys, but may not necessarily be in a leadership position. DB was a SS in the 82nd with 15 soldiers (or maybe it was 20... not quite sure) under his command. Then he moved up here in a new position as an SS with no one under his command. He's now the new guy at the bottom of the foodchain. Nonetheless, since his rank stayed the same, he is still considered an NCO. Does that make any sense to you?
