  Officer (armed forces) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A non-commissioned officer is a military member holding a position of authority who has obtained it by promotion from within the enlisted ranks.
A Warrant Officer may be simply a high-ranking non-commissioned officer whose position has been affirmed by warrant from the bureaucracy directing the force, or may be a separate grade altogether, sometimes actually holding a commission (known as a "Commissioned Warrant Officer").
Officers, non-commissioned officers, and junior ranks in almost every country of the world are segregated along the lines of the Prussian system of messing, where eating facilities, accommodation, and social facilities are kept separate to ensure relations between various ranks stay strictly professional.

 What Makes a Professional?   (Site not responding. Last check: )
he questions of whether military officers ought to receive systematic education in ethics and, if so, what the form and substance of that education ought to be are a subset of a broader range of questions concerning the formation appropriate to professionals in all fields.
The first of these is that officers cannot possess or sustain the autonomy they require for exercising professional judgment without understanding what goods served by their professional practice and publicly evidencing a commitment to serve these goods.
In the case of military officers, this means that autonomy will not be granted by the community (and those who govern the community) unless the officers display the appropriate military skills and evidence a commitment to establish and protect peace.

 Collection of Military Quotations :: Officers
"Officers [are] a reflection of their men, more restrained because their training is more complete, more resourceful because they have more responsibility, but the same fears are a little deeper buried in them, the same longings are more tightly locked in their hearts." p.48.
It might be thought that an officer living in such close contact with his men would soon become on familiar terms with them.
This easily happens and often enough the officer's authority seems to become shared out among the men, leaving him with the ultimate responsibility for decisions he may not have been alone in making.
