Army commissioned officers are members of a unique fellowship that has spanned the history of our nation since the Army’s inception on June 14, 1775, as the first branch of the American military services. From General George Washington and General Ulysses Grant to General Dwight Eisenhower and General Colin Powell, Army commissioned officers strive to complete every mission with dedication and excellence. They are entrusted with serving as a model of the Army Values as they perform their leadership duties. They serve our nation with dignity and devotion.

Commissioned officers are responsible for completing demanding missions while ensuring the welfare, morale, and professional development of the Soldiers entrusted to them. Commissioned officers begin their Army service as young leaders, providing a blend of valuable skills and knowledge. With their self-discipline, motivation, confidence, and judgment, they use problem solving skills to determine solutions and accomplish the mission. Having the strength to inspire courage in others is the hallmark of an Army commissioned officer.
