Do You Know What The Army’s Enlisted Soldiers Are Really Made Of?
By The Veterans Site
The U.S. Army is made up of a diverse group of men and women who boast different ranks and responsibilities. Army ranks include the categories of enlisted personnel, warrant officers, and commissioned officers, with each of those categories subsequently having its own ranking system.
There are 13 ranks alone for enlisted personnel, which roughly break down into three groups: Junior Enlisted, Non-Commissioned Officers (NCOs), and Senior Non-Commissioned Officers (Senior NCOs).
Here’s a quick rundown of the different ranks, responsibilities, and privileges for enlisted soldiers.
An Army Specialist and Corporal have the same rank of E-4, although their jobs differ. Basically, the Corporal is a Non-Commissioned Officer (NCO) who leads teams, while the Specialist is among the Junior Enlisted ranks with a job focused on their specialized technical abilities.
