Military Assistant


Military Assistant

In the British Armed Forces and many of those derived from them, an officer appointed to the personal office of a general officer. They are similar to aides-de-camp but generally have a more overtly administrative role.

In the United States Armed Forces and the Canadian Forces, the equivalent position is that of Executive Assistant.
