Fort Benning to hold NCO induction ceremony

Press Release

FORT BENNING, GA -- The Henry Caro Noncommissioned Officer Academy will have a noncommissioned officer induction ceremony Sept. 25 at 2 p.m. at the Benning Conference Center.

NCOs are enlisted soldiers who hold the rank of corporal and above.  They are members of a time-honored corps, which is known as "The Backbone of the Army," because they serve as an intermediary between the officers and the troops.

Their two basic responsibilities are the accomplishment of their mission and the welfare of their soldiers.  They provide leadership, placing the needs of their soldiers before their own.  NCOs are tactically and technically proficient and ensure their soldiers are also properly trained.
