Military news: Barton completes Warrant Officer Candidate School

Army Warrant Officer 1 Stephen D. Barton has graduated from the Warrant Officer Candidate School at Fort Rucker, Ala.

The course is designed to certify warrant officers as technically and tactically competent to serve as warrant officers in designated career specialties. The officer must successfully complete the course prior to being appointed to the rank of warrant officer one. The primary focus of the school is military occupational specialty specific, augmented with common-core subjects as designated by a Task Site Selection Board and monitored by the Warrant Officer Career Center.

The course also prepares newly appointed officers for their first duty assignments and all subsequent assignments as warrant officers and chief warrant officers in the active Army, National Guard or Reserve.

Barton is the son of David and Cheryl Barton, of Aledo. His wife, Kelli, is the daughter of Mark and Tammy Cloud, of White Oak.

He received an associate degree in 2010 from Kilgore College, and a bachelor’s degree in 2008 from LeTourneau University in Longview.
