REDSTONE ARSENAL, Alabama -- Warrant officers use their specialized skills and expertise to support their command’s mission and ensure their teams have what they need to be successful, according to one U.S. Army Satellite Operations Brigade warrant officer.Chief Warrant Officer 2 Miguel Carmona, property accounting technician, Satellite Operations Brigade, said his role means using his expertise and experience to guarantee his team has all the equipment they need.“What I do is vital to the Satellite Operations Brigade,” Carmona said. “Logistics play a big role in every operation within our force, and if I’m not able to properly manage and provide the necessary equipment, our missions could fail.”Carmona said he always planned to serve in the military because service runs in his family. He enlisted in the Army June 5, 2003, and quickly learned about the role warrant officers have in the Army.“My first duty station was Fort Rucker, Alabama,” Carmona said. “I was lucky enough to work with some great warrant officers who mentored me and left a great impression on me as a young Soldier. I knew then I wanted to become a warrant officer one day.”Carmona was commissioned as a warrant officer in 2016. Warrant officers are the technical foundation of the Army, and they specialize in a particular field. They use their expertise to advise senior leaders and commanders and to train Soldiers in their fields.“I’m a 920A Property Accounting Technician, better known as PBO,” Carmona said. “We manage all equipment and property for units and provide logistical support for our commands. Without the proper equipment, the Satellite Operations Brigade wouldn’t be able to successfully do its job.”The Satellite Operations Brigade allocates and manages the capacity and usage of wideband satellites for military communications. This method of communication can be vital to combatant command missions, so it is imperative that its missions are successful.There are currently three warrant officers serving at the brigade, providing expert work, knowledge and advice in their respect fields. Though Carmona works as a property accounting technician now and is an expert in his field, he did not have experience in this type of logistics before joining the Army. He said he learned a lot about his field by doing and learning from those around him, and he said he had to learn about the brigade’s specialized equipment on the job.“Being a part of the Satellite Operations Brigade exposed me to a different world in regards to the equipment we have on hand,” Carmona said. “Due to the types of missions we complete and the capabilities we need, our equipment isn’t the conventional or typical gear you’d see just anywhere.”While he plays a vital role in the brigade’s mission, he said every military occupational specialty is significant to the brigade and the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command.“Every MOS is important,” Carmona said. “Each of them plays a vital role on the bigger scale, and one can’t survive without the other.”Carmona said while warrant officers serve as experts in their fields, at the end of the day, they are just people who enjoy being part of the team and being able to support others around them.“We are a very small percentage within the Army but love to be part of the team,” Carmona said. “Everyone should get to know the warrant officers they work with. “
