2009 - The Year of the Noncommissioned Officer


2009 - The Year of the Noncommissioned Officer

Since 1775, the Army has set apart its NCOs from other enlisted Soldiers by distinctive insignia of grade.

In recognition of their commitment to service and willingness to make great sacrifices on behalf of our Nation, Secretary of the Army established 2009 as “Year of the NCO.”

Throughout 2009, the Army honors NCOs through initiatives and events that:


  • Enhance awareness and public understanding of the roles and responsibilities of today’s NCO.

  • Enhance and accelerate the development of NCOs through education, fitness, and leadership development initiatives.

We invite you to join the celebration of one of America’s greatest assets, the NCO Corps, the “backbone of the American Army.” (Click here to see the U.S. Army's Year of the NCO website)
