Military Ranks?

Ok so how is this post ranking system calculated?

I see people who are Private first class and have more posts than 2nd Lt....how do these promotions work?

Also what system are we following? from what i can gather the ranks go...

Private First Class
Second Lt.
First. Lt
Captain
Major
Lt. Col
Col
B. General
General

those are big jumps...

the Marines go
Private
Private First Class
L. Cpl
Cpl
Sgt
SSgt
GSgt
MSgt
1st Sgt
Master GSgt
SgtMaj

Then Warrant or Officer Ranks

While the Army goes...
Private
Private First Class
Cpl
Sgt
SSgt (SSG)
Sgt1st Class
MSgt
1stSgt
SgtMaj

Then to Officer ranks Lt > or Warrant Officer Ranks

Ranks don't really matter first of all. Second, it's all dependent upon your total post count. Off-Topic posts don't count.

Im all for ditching this military crapola. pick colors or metals (gold down to tin?) I dont care. but our militarism culture has really gotten to be too much. sorry if this offends the flag wavers and I indeed respect all who serve (even in illegal wars of choice). but PLEASE - lets try some other thing. hey, how about a ranking related to (gasp!) BMW's!! 1ers on up to the trucks - I dont care, just dump this military rank crap.
thank you for your patience and g*d bless the PLANET!
