Hey everyone and thanks for visiting Signal Chief.com My name is Troy Ward. I am a Chief Warrant Officer 3 in the US Army with 15+ years of experience in telecommunications. So what is Signal Chief.Com? Basically this serves as my place on the interweb to give out my little tidbits of knowledge to new signal warrant officers and anyone else who may be interested. This is based primarily on my experiences as a network technician as well as my time as an OC/T where I have the opportunity to see 10 different Brigade Combat Teams come through and fight a two week war each year.
