Apr 05, 2013 News Comments Off on New GDF Warrant Officers decorated
Three Warrant Officers Class 1, and 10 Warrant Officers Class 2 were yesterday decorated with their new badges of rank in recognition of their elevation. Among them was a lone female, Warrant Officer Class 2 Marcia Williams of the Medical Corps.
The new ranks were conferred on them by Chief of Staff (COS) Commodore Gary Best, by virtue of the power invested in him by Chapter 15:01 of the Constitution of Guyana.
This was the first ever Badging Ceremony held for Warrant Officers. Commodore Best noted that the ceremony was important and was in recognition of their work as well as the confidence which the Senior Officer Corps attached to their contribution.
Describing the newly promoted WOs as being, “above the backbone” of the Force, the COS called on them to do their part in dealing with the challenges being posed by indiscipline among soldiers. “Discipline is the hallmark of regimentation. We need to have a firmer hand in dealing with discipline. We cannot evade our responsibilities, you have to embrace it” he told the WOs, while also urging that they be bold, upfront and visible in dealing with these issues.
He cautioned against the abuse of authority, urging the new WOs to instead “use it to promote the welfare of the Guyana Defence Force”.
Commodore Best told those gathered at the ceremony that his administration continues to have confidence in the Corps of Warrant Officers. He also made clear his expectation that the Corps complies with and enforces the regulations, values and standards of the Force.
