 commissioned officer rankIn military organizations, an officer is a member of the service who holds a position of responsibility. Commissioned officers derive authority directly from a sovereign power and, as such, hold a commission charging them with the duties and responsibilities of a specific office or position. Commissioned officers are typically the only persons in a military able to exercise command (according to the most technical definition of the word) over a military unit. Non-commissioned officers in positions of authority can be said to have control or charge rather than command per se, although the use of the word command to describe any use of authority is widespread and often official.

 US warrant officer rankIn the United States military, a warrant officer was originally, and strictly, a highly skilled, single-track specialty officer. But as many chief warrant officers assume positions as officer in charge or department head, along with the high number of bachelor's and master's degrees held within the community, their contribution and expertise as a community is ever-increasing. There are no 'warrant officers' per se in the U.S. Navy, but rather the term 'chief warrant officer' is correct. In the U.S. Navy, a sailor must be in one of the top three enlisted ranks to be eligible to become a Chief Warrant Officer. In the U.S. Army, a person can progress to the warrant officer rank at a grade lower than E-7 thus having a longer career and greater opportunity to serve and grow. In the U.S. Marine Corps, after serving at least eight years of enlisted service, and reaching the grade of E-5 (sergeant), an enlisted Marine can apply for the Warrant Officer program. Upon the initial appointment to WO1 a warrant is given by the secretary of the service, and upon promotion to chief warrant officer (CW2 and above) they are commissioned by the President of the United States, take the same oath and receive the same commission and charges as commissioned officers, thus deriving their authority from the same source.
