Bold, aggressive leadership by petty officers is the key to the U.S. Navy's success in fighting the global war on terrorism. In the transition from the Navy to the Marine Corps there are differences in the organizational structures between the two branches of the Department of the Navy. The most significant difference is the role of noncommissioned officers. The typical corporal in the Marine Corps has as much, if not more, decision-making ability, accountability for personnel in his charge and more hands-on leadership tasks.
