Ya, because my 2lt. gets so much more respects than my platoon sergeant....
Anyone in the military will tell you that NCO's are the most respected ranks. They are the people who actually know what they are doing (for the most part). "Backbone of the Army".
And this is not necessarily true. I went to basic with two guys who actually enlisted with ranger contracts. One of them deserved the hell out of it. Best soldier in my BCT company hands down. The other didnt even come close to be deserving of such things. He just got lucky and found an MOS that had the contact attached to it. The point is that both of these soldiers entered BCT already knowing they would get to go to Ranger school. Of coarse they still have to make it through school, but thats not the point.
Oh and neither were infantry.
