Abstract:

Throughout time, the duties and responsibilities of the American noncommissioned officers have undergone a great transformation of empowerment for numerous reasons. The three most significant aspects of technology, education, and social evolution however, are responsible for the greatest impact. We have adequately prepared our NCOs to the best extent possible. The process of employing new systems and newfound experience leads to the identification of new, more capable systems and revised doctrine, requiring further adaptation. We are thus constantly out of synch and probably always will be. This creates even more need for hierarchical layers as task organization changes.
