    Ok, I'm looking into my family history right now and I know that my grandfather fought in WWII. I think I have found the unit he was in based on engravings in the holster of a gun that (according to family history) he took off of a German soldier during his time in Europe. The unit listed was the 276th, Bloody Ax, "Trailblazers". I've contacted their webmaster to see what information he may have, but on my own I have found his enlistment information. It lists him as a Warrant officer when he was recruited. I'm not in the military myself and was hoping that someone could tell me what it was that a Warrant officer did. Thanks in advance.

    What doesn't a warrant officer do? ;) Warrants are technical experts that are in the nether zone between Officers and Enlisted. Ranks are (in the Army):

    WO1
    CW2
    CW3
    CW4
    CW5

    WO1's are not commissioned officers but still command the military respect afforded to officers (Salutes and Salutations)
