Abstract:

Throughout history the Non-Commission Officer NCO has played an indispensable role in the readiness of the United States Army. The NCO Corps have contributed input in the development of lighter more efficient weapons, assumed more duties and responsibilities past due to transformation, led the way in training the force and placed emphasis on advance education, and the NCO Corps had many soldiers who have performed above and beyond the call of duty in acts of heroism past and present. These are just a few contributions the NCO Corps has made to the United States Army over the past 60 years and each will be discussed in greater detail. Let it be known that the tradition and dedication to duty is why the NCO Corps is considered the back bone of the Army and has stood the test of time conflict after conflict.
