In army units, this person is often called the Adjutant. S1 also works with the postal mailing office.

All aspects of sustaining the unit's operations, planning future operations, and additionally planning and executing all unit training, fall under the responsibility of operations. The operations office is also tasked with keeping track of the weekly training schedules. In most military units (i.e. battalion, regiment, and brigade), the operations officer carries the same rank as theexecutive officer (XO), but would obviously rank third in the unit's chain of command.
