Revised Chain of Command

In a military context, the chain of command is the line of authority and responsibility along which orders are passed within a military unit and between different units. Orders are transmitted down the chain of command, from a higher-ranked soldier, such as a commission officer, to lower-ranked personnel who either execute the order personally or transmit it down the chain as appropriate, until it is received by those expected to execute it. Wikipedia

Good day 83!

The revised chain of command that takes into account our recent promotions is now available on this site under About > Training > Chain of Command

This should allow everyone to know who they are responsible for and to.  If you have questions or requests talk to the person immediately above you, who will do the same all the way up the chain until you have an answer or the help you need.  For those with people below you it is your responsibility to help, guide and mentor those cadets.

83 has a track record of great cadets doing great things, both during and after their time with us.  The chain of command is just another tool we can use to make sure that everyone has access to the tools, guidance, and opportunity they need in order to succeed.

Lead On 83!
