...oh yeah, that'd be ME!!!

Now I just need a school date. I haven't been this happy in some time...:blob8:

Congratulations! Now you can be an Officer and a Gentleman, instead of a knuckle dragger!

How many pairs of kneepads did you wear out? Does your mouth hurt?

My mouth's fine, but I'm walking a little funny...

Well done to you. In the good old UK Armed Forces, you would be called "Mister" even by HM Queen Elizabeth II. (I'm not a Monarchist, BTW) and once a upon a time you would recieve a Warrant signed by the Sovereign hence the term "Warrant Officer". After a while, it became the Chief of the General Staff (principal soldier), one old sweat I worked with claimed his had been signed by FM Montgomery (later "Viscount" - that's a senior Lord).

If you were in the RAF, you'd probably run it.

Congrats again.

Congrats Old Man!

Congratulations! Of course now you're going to have to change your screen name.

I was always terrified of my CWO - mean and proficient as an NCO with all the powers of an officer.

Congrats to the future WARRANT...from one of the only real CHIEFS in the military services. =D

Out of curiosity, what does one do as a warrant officer?

Is it like being a comissioned officer without being comissioned?

Nope, 352P. Remember, I was a 98G for 12 years before I was a 97E/35M.

A commissioned officer is a generalist in their field. They have to know a little bit about everything in their assigned branch. The Warrant Officer is also a commissioned officer (at the CW2 level) but specializes in one aspect (such as myself with languages).

This is a pretty gross oversimplification, but you get the idea.

Not knowing much about the military, even I know that Warrant Officer is extremely impressive.

Congrats! From what I know WCs are the most respected in the services.
