I have worked with a bunch of warrant officers It's a real high speed low drag AO. Here is the best information I can give you. First off go here [url]http://www.goarmy.com/about/warrant_officer.jsp[/url] and read about it and see if you really want to be a warrant officer. Second go to your local Army Recruiter. You half to score pretty high on most of the test so start studying. If you have any questions just hit me back.

That website gives you all the exact information about how to become a warrant officer, it tells you what fields they need them in and all the prerequisites and waivers. Some things are waiverable and some are not.

Good luck!

Lets see here I work with 3 CW4's, My uncle is a CW5, My father is a Retired paratrooper (MAJ), 2 of my AI's at UNA were former Ranger Black Hats, I'm currently on a Ranger Challenge team, I come form 4 generations of Infantry men, and I was looking into applying for WO school before I got the ROTC scholarship. So pardon me, but I have grown up in high speed low drag AO's my entire life. I might only be 18 but I have grown up in a military life style. Now I'm just trying to help this man out by passing down my prior knowledge of this subject. So please lets stay on the current subject and if you want to argue with me pleas do it over a private msg.

I knew you'd write back... Private message?? Won't happen... I would never want to give you the wrong impression... I wasn't arguing I just told you I thought it was funny. What I do think is interesting is that given your extreme military background you lack the discipline to control your emotions in confrontational situations.

Just remember - wear your own rank... hehe

I didn't get emotional I just set you straight. I'm going to give you some helpful advice here. One speak of what you know and not of what you don't, and two Stay in your lane. Ie if you don't have anything to say about the subject at hand don't say anything at all. This man dose not want to here our bickering in this thread that was created for him seeking information. Oh btw my rank is equivalent to a E-5.

You've got your phraseology mixed up a bit, Samuel. Rangers wear Tan Berets & "Black Hats" are instructors in Airborne School.

There was a time I think about 10 or so years ago when Rangers of the 75th Regt. wore Black Berets while nobody but SF & Airborne wore berets. There was also a short time, before I was in the Army, where Armor wore Black Berets. Now of course everyone else wears the black beret.

I was proud of my Maroon Beret but now some of the meaning of the whole beret system has been watered down.

I thought that was the case before. I didn't remember everyone in the Army wearing berets. Honestly I thought only the Green Berets actually wore them. Obviously I was wrong.
