  Officer (armed forces) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
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 (as in the navies of the British Commonwealth), or may be a separate grade altogether (as in the United States armed forces).
In the United States military, Warrant Officers are officers who, instead of being at the command position of a given unit, are usually instead focused on their technical expertise in a given field - helicopter pilots and IT specialists, for example.
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.
