Army Commissioned Officers are critical thinkers and decision makers who inspire strength in others. They 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 American military services. From General George Washington to General Ulysses S. Grant to General Dwight D. Eisenhower, Army Commissioned Officers strive to complete every mission with dedication and excellence.
Commissioned Officers are responsible for completing demanding missions while ensuring the welfare, morale and professional development of the Soldiers entrusted to them. As visionary leaders, they use their self-discipline, motivation, confidence and judgment to solve problems and accomplish their mission.
Requirements for becoming a Commissioned Officer vary based upon which path you choose.
