A primary Objective of the Recruiting and Retention Command (RRC) is to select qualified and competent Soldiers for advancement to the Warrant Officer Career Fields. Our leadership is unwavering in the recruitment process and we target only the most desirable candidates. This is a challenging objective, considering the required technical experience and competencies expected of today's Warrant Officer (WO).
The talent we seek is inherent among most seasoned enlisted Soldiers. After learning more about the many incentives of becoming a Warrant Officer, we are confident that you will strongly consider transitioning to the Corps. Among the incentives are job satisfaction, and the substantial differences in annual training, drill and retirement incomes. When comparing the earnings potential, spanning the career of an enlisted Soldier compared to that of a Warrant Officer the differences are absolutely astounding!
