    United States Air Force Ranks, lowest to highest
    Only place ive ever seen it made out to look like that........

    Air Force Enlisted Rank Insignia
    Military Connection - Air Force Military Ranks
    Department of Defense Enlisted Rank Insignias

    But, I'll stop here.. not to make a mountain out of a mole hill.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    I agree this is a molehill. Probably just a mistake on the website I got my info from.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    That must be one old website. I was active duty Air Force in the late 80s and E-4 was senior airman and after a year you could become sergeant (buck sgt we called it)(similar to the Army E-4 rank, you have SPC and CPL, with the CPL having more responsibility but no more pay). Some time in the early 90s, IIRC, they did away with the SGT designation and E-4 was just senior airman and E-5 was staff sgt. the E-4 rank is the old E-4 SGT rank (the old E-4 SRA rank simply did not have the star colored in).

    I remember those days. Getting rid of the E-4 buck sgt rank made it so you had to at least take a test to become a NCO. When there was a E-4 sgt rank all you had to do is have a pulse to become a NCO.

    Don't know about the other branch of services, but foot-slogging naval infantry (Marines) have been obsolete for a very long time. They survive on the Semper Fi Ruff-Ruff propaganda. Fold them into the Army.

    Air force. Modern military action is not about throwing bodies into the grinder. It is about superior technology, and our air force is where the biggest difference lies. We should be destroying our enemies with as precise attacks as possible, and not putting troops in danger by using them as police for occupied countries. If we have a problem, we remove it and leave, with as few casualties and collateral damage as possible. Ideally, not a single soldier would have to go in front of an enemy weapon.

    My apologies for making this a U.S. poll question - feel free to start one that outlines military branches in other countries.

    What a Chinese fire drill that would be if it ever happened.
