Took me a while to figure it out. I thought my rank was a field promotion and it had been recended.

i lodged my complaint at the beginning as a frustration to the new site learning curve [i am fairly computer illiterate] but ill add here that ive accepted and figured out the new site satisfactorily ,

having said this , if we have a 'ranking' it should be correct , if not why have it ?
it doesnt change my visits , i seldom look at it and , it doesnt change the fact that we have good people here i like to associate with , also critical thinkers that are fun to discuss with

thanks for fixing it don :grin:

I just clicked on the ranks button at the top of the forum and there is definately an error, at least as far as I can tell. I'm no military expert by any stretch of the imagination. I tried to serve in the military when I got out of high school, but was rejected because of my bad leg. The two I highlighted in bold are in the wrong order. There may be other mistakes (I always get confused on the various sergeant ranks), so hopefully someone else will look them over to make sure they are right.
