NIACT & Navy Leadership
Although groups going through NIACT are made up of IAs that are pulled together from many different parent commands, they represent the Navy as a whole and must function as a team while at NIACT. Based on this, Navy leadership issues associated with an ad-hoc command can be prevented with more pro-active leadership from senior enlisted and officers on site. To this end, if you are a senior enlisted or a junior officer, be prepared to act as a group leader ensuring professional conduct at NIACT. Army culture is such that senior enlisted personnel are typically designated as platoon leaders. Navy officers therefore need to act in a supporting role for the senior enlisted personnel designated in the command structure established by the Army.
