As a Unit Program Coordinator one of the programs I managed was resource advisor where I was in charge of the squadrons finances. The squadron I worked for was a pilot squadron where there were both Officers and Enlisted. Working with military members there is a hierarchy one must be prepared to deal with where Officers are at the top. One of the issues I had was making sure everyone within this hierarchy's needs were met. The Enlisted had a list of items they needed purchasing while the Officers another. The Enlisted wanted a new radio and uniforms and the Commander did not feel there was a need to spend money on these items. I tried hard to make the argument that these were essential items but ultimately he made the decision. I felt bad but I had to go with what my leadership wanted. I was able to compromise other lower items to ensure some of the Enlisted needs were met. Less
