Firstly robably been done before - if so, moderators please bin. Secondly: I'm overseas and need some company. For me it was Staff Sgt. Troop leader. On a par with Lt. Troop Leaders, and with my experience I was better than they were - apart from Lt. N*** F***, a true born leader. Me? I just had good training and 12 years at the coal face to go on. So. Is there a "perfect rank" in the Army ..... and why? Which rank cooked your biscuit?
