"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"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
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).
ARMY it seems they do most of the main stuff .
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.

Marines for obvious reasons.
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.
