What Is a Tactical Officer?

Leader Developer  -  Leader Integrator  -  Coach  -  Mentor  -  Instructor

A Tactical Officer (TAC) is the legal Company Commander of a Cadet Company and the primary integrator at the United States Military Academy. They assess the potential and oversee the holistic development of cadets as required by the physical, military, academic, and moral-ethical programs. Tactical Officers coach, teach, and mentor the cadet chain of command by empowering them to take ownership and responsibility for their Cadet Company.  

Consider applying for the Eisenhower Leadership Development Program (ELDP) to help shape the leaders of tomorrow’s Armed Forces, nation, and world.
