Explaining the US Army officer ranks

Explaining the US Army officer ranks

In this video i cover some of the way an individual can become an officer in the US Army and the ranks. This is the final video in my series of videos that go a little in depth with explaining Army rank and how someone gets to that rank.

As with the other video please not they are not intended to make people an expert in every way someone gets promoted and how they can move up the ranks. I leave out some details to attempt to avoid confusing people with every possible situation and overloading them when they were just curious and not looking to become experts.

NOTE: I made a mistake in this video and said George Washington was a 5 star general when he was a 6 star general.
