We should also point out that even though an E-9 has been in for 20 years or more an O-1 who has only been in 1 year is still senior to the E-9 but no E-9 will ever let a "boot" Lt tell him what to do . So it is more adequate so see who is the senior Enlisted and Senior Officer.

Typically an E-6, O-1 and O-2 are at the same level. and an E-8 will be with and O-3 and E-9s will be with O-4s and higher depending on how long the E-9 has been in his present grade. Enlisted work as advisors to the Officers. they work together to accomplish the mission.

Now for the Marines, when you get to the E-8 and 9 department there is 2 different ranks for each pay grade. 1st Sgt(E-8) and Sgt Major (E-9) is an administrative type job where Master Sgt (E-8) Master Gunnery Sgt(E-9) are in the tactical realm dealling with things necessary to train the troops.

Maybe someone else can shed some light on thier respective services and how they work for the civilian community that has an interest in our posts here.
0-1P here, and in the Army, E-8 (Master Sergeant) is on the admin/training side of the house, whereas E-8 (1SG) is tactical. We don't specify between the different levels of E-9, other than the placement in a unit heirarchy. The longer you have been E-9, the higher grade of commissioned officer you work with.

Believe it or not, technically you don't. Rank structure is as follows: Commissioned officers, Warrant officers, Academy commissionees, Other Commissionees, Enlisted Personnel. Although as a former ROTC cadet, I would advise you to keep that mindset lol.

I got a former Citadel cadet as a TL and MSG as my TM Sgt who would laugh at this BS. Any cadet comes to my team room better be ready to GTFO. A cadet from the Academy or any ROTC has not commissioned and as such is afforded all respect due their rank....none. Just messing though. When I was still in the Infantry we had a Cadet for a month over the summer and our CPT PL had fun tasking him to do what we, lower enlisted, needed done.

There is a significant difference in the way a cadet is treated, but the fact remains they do officially outrank you. It's on you and your guys to teach them what they need to be to help you do your job...cause while they don't have commissions as cadets, they likely will in a few short years and if you don't take the time to teach them a few things they'll be that much harder to deal with.
On the flip side...a smart cadet won't ever tell you they outrank you...or even open their mouth much...

I hope the “lessons” your organization instilled in that cadet are not coming back to haunt our young men and women in the box right now.

Not so sure about the CG because I've been ashore most of my 5 years but I had an Army 1 Sgt that said when he got a new Lt the first thing he said was shut your mouth and follow my lead. I don't know if you'd find many O1s or O2s that would pipe up against an E7 or higher but once you Os pin on those double bars...

Back on topic, change my vote to E5.
