    Good grief what a shit-storm about cadets haha. I'm sure every branch does it differently, but in the ARMY (Army only, according to AR 600-200), TECHNICALLY cadets fall in the chain of command between commissioned officers and warrants. USMA cadets "outrank" ROTC cadets. As has been previously mentioned, they are addressed as "Sir", but do not command a salute. Nor will one with any sense try to throw his weight around. I am currently mentoring an SMP cadet, and can only hope I am not corrupting him too much.

    Reading all the comments reminded me of a point in time during my career where the Army was trying to standardize the abbreviations for Duty Positions when typed on the Officer Record Brief (ORB) which was a 1 page listing of qualifications, education, duty assignments, overseas tours, etc. that went before promotion boards. The most infamous example I saw was for a Warrant Officer Position in Military Intelligence - the position was the Chief of the Analysis and Production Division. And the winning abbreviation? CHIEF ANAL PROD

    Shit bolted onto other shit, and junk.
    General, don't you mean Army Air Corps, hah. Thanks for your service as well as all those posting here, be it 2 months or 20 plus years. You have and will continue to contribute to the less than one half of one percent that stand ready willing and able. I am proud to call each one of you my brother and sister and whether my life ends on some foreign soil or home at peace, i will go calmly knowing i walked alongside the best of what this incredible nation has to offer.
