A Military assistant, in the British Armed Forces and many of those derived from them, is 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 Canadian Forces, the equivalent position is that of Executive Assistant.

In the United States Department of Defense, a Military Assistant is a military officer serving as aide to very senior civilian (typically a presidentai appointee in OSD or in the service secretariats), while a military officer in an equivalent position serving a general/flag officer is an Executive Assistant.
