Top position goes to Admiral Preston Cole, for his innovation of space-borne combat tactics with the Covenant. Fleet Admiral Terrance Hood is not far off the top for orchestrating the UNSC defensive strategy, alongside the UNSC Defense Council. Colonel Ackerson is also notable for his contributions that helped lead to a highly effective Special Operations Command. Of special note, Doctor Cathrine Halsey (who counts as a UNSC Navy operative, given her affiliation ONI) was instrumental to the SPARTAN-II project that ultimately delivered Humanity from destruction.
