    Did your "L" key break in the middle of this sentence?

    Of course...I was planning to submit my retirement papers next summer but they went and selected me for brigade command. So now I'm stuck for another 3 1/2 years.

    Hold on a minute--am I hearing you say your posts on a message board will accomplish your goal of getting Clay fired?! If that's true, I am stunned at your self-importance (ignorance?).

    I’m kinda dumb when it comes to this stuff, but do you have to be a 1 Star General to lead a brigade or can a lowly Major or Colonel do it?

    Or does that mean you are literally in the Brigade Command Center?


    Anyway, that is fantastic and we’re all proud of you

    A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, we had a coach named John McKay who took his O-line seriously. At least one of his offensive linemen corralled a few Heisman Trophy votes.

    Haha, no worries brother. It goes kind of like this (each higher level unit has multiples of the prior size unit):

    Team (Specialist - Enlisted) -> Squad -> (Sergeant - Enlisted) -> Platoon (2nd Lieutenant) -> Company (Captain) -> Battalion (Lieutenant Colonel) -> Brigade (Colonel) -> Division (typically a Major General)

    Your ranks in between will typically be staff officers supporting a higher level command. Most Majors work in a Battalion or Brigade Staff.

    Thanks CCT. We are just doing our part. Most all Americans contribute in their own way. We should all appreciate that. What's sad is that veterans' presence in Congress is growing smaller and smaller each election cycle. Representation in Congress from those who have experienced military service is extremely important. They might think a bit more about how they use that tool to fix global problems. Military is just a tool for politicians to enforce national policy...sometimes they pick the wrong tools.

    Very well done Blem, I had presumptuously demoted Troybill down to Captain for years. I would have felt bad but Colonel Bill graciously let me off that hook.

    You are MSC right? Any chance at getting that star?

    Thank you for your service. The military needs experienced leadership. My son is a Lt. Commander in the Navy and he talks about the need for strong experienced leaders. Fight on!

    Nope AN.

    Currently Deputy Commanding Officer at one of our Medical Centers. I doubt I'll stay around long enough to get a Star. Too many things I'd like to do in the Private Sector. So my goal now is building a posse of at least 20 future Colonels to take my place over then next 15 years.
