Making Friends and Influencing People

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. The US Chairman of the Joint Chiefs has appointed a senior enlisted adviser, Command Sergeant Major Gainey, who acts as his 'eyes and ears' on all enlisted issues. As well as spending a large part of his time visiting US bases, he also meets senior military leaders of other countries.

    Is this merely a ceremonial role or does it serve a genuine purpose? Does Gainey act as a cheerleader for senior US Generals or does his role genuinely benefit junior soldiers?

    And would the British Army benefit from such a position?
  2. I sem to think that Michael Yon has blogged about this bloke and what he actually does. I'll see if I can find it again.

    Cannot find it in short order but see this
