Well, I got 26 out of 30. Should have done better, but I'm old.

25 of 30

 

 

***Spoiler Alert****

 

 

 

I think you could generate a heck of a debate about whether MGySgt or SgtMaj is more senior in the Marine Corps.  Also never heard of the pinning rank inside your cover or pocket.

26 of 30. I think they took a lot of liberties with some of the answers.

And it's wrong 

 

Enlisted,  Warrant Officers and Commissioned Officers are the 3 rank groups

Yep, I don't agree with the question on which Army rank is equivalent to Marine Lance Corporal.  In the Marines, a private is an E-1, a PFC is an E-2 and a Lance Corporal is an E-3.  Is an Army PFC an E-3?  If so, what Army rank is an E-2?

E-3 in the Army is Private First Class. E-2 is PV2 or Private Second Class. While it's the same enlisted rank, I think a Lance Corporal is more equivalent to the Army's Specialist E-4 in responsibility.
