A Military Staff also often referred to either as the General Staff, Army Staff, Navy or Naval Staff, or Air Staff. The staff are usually a group of officers that assists the commander of a very large military unit by formulating and disseminating his policies, transmitting his orders, and overseeing their execution. Normally a military staff is organised along functional lines, with separate divisions, departments or sections, for administration, intelligence, operations, training, logistics, and other specific functions.
