Rank Responsibility




The officers of the battalion have a diverse set of responsibilities, both on and off the field. The officers of the regiment are expected to be both kind and respectful to members of the regiment, both above and below them on the chain of command, and to members of other regiments and the community. When a member of the regiment becomes an officer, he accepts that he now have responsibilities to the regiment that he must fulfill these obligations, or be removed from his position.
