Go officer........is that the best advice out there. I had fresh boot Ensigns and Lts try to lead from the rear, with a sheepskin saying they were leaders......2 ended up blown to friggin bits and the others were ignored by the enlisted folks. Mainly due to no knowledge of what they were doing......so yeah, go officer, but use your head and lead from the front.
