Our Values

Professionalism is our watchword. We speak candidly, but always with respect for each other and our commission. We tackle our leadership challenges with a positive voice, focused solely on building and leading combat-ready teams. We welcome multiple, diverse perspectives on how we can achieve this common purpose. We seek to bring to bear the knowledge, experiences, and character of each experienced company-grade officer to serve all current and future generations of junior officers.

Why Join the Junior Officer Forum?

The documents and conversations in this space are almost entirely by and for us–past, present, and future junior officers. The JO Forum is more than just a resource for junior officers; its value comes from officers connecting with each other and sharing our experiences and hard-earned knowledge. We invite each of you to participate as your time and experiences allow.
