The purpose of this research is to identify the benefits of reinstating the Warrant Officer, highly specialized technical experts, into the Air Force active duty and reserve component. The United States Air Force is facing issues retaining technical experts to perform their missions. As junior enlisted and officers move up the ranks to senior non-commissioned officers SNCOs and field grade officers FGOs respectively they lose their technical expertise as they transition into staff support and leadership roles. Our most technical and capable part of the force shift from technological to a supervisory role, leaving a deficit in the field with subject matter expertise.
