Looks About Right To Me « Stuff Important to Me »

Jeremy responded to my whining and made a GI Joe card for me:

Thanks, Jeremy!!!

Interestingly, that's pretty much what I look like on the weekends.

Oh. My. Goodness. That does resemble you.

Wait- you did get a higher rank than me did you?

That should read didn't get a higher rank....

...I don't know. Not important. The cool thing is I have guns and a cat.

I'm working on the filecard: (Its a busy week here in the cubicle jungle)

Nathan: Do your comments allow tables and other nifty HTML code?

And technically, Nathan IS an O-2...

Posted by: Jeremy at December 21, 2004 07:24 AM

I think it does allow all that. I've never actually tried, tho.

Even more technically, I'm on the Promotees list to O-3. Unfortunately, it doesn't take effect until the end of June '05...but it's only a matter of time. They slipped up and now I can't be stopped from being promoted to Capt!!!

So I guess you liked the bio-write up.

Hey Nate! Congratulations :D

But, I am still concerned about that ranking....ummm, how did you determine my rank, Jeremy?

(And please know this is in complete fun).

P.S. Where's Jo?

okay okay okay
It is now become more than obvious that I know little about the inner workings of the U.S. Military, and what ranks do what.

I meerly was using the existing G.I. Joe Genre as a template.

For example, the overall leader of the Joes is a Brigadeer General. He was called Hawk.

After that, the only officers which appear were very special ranks (ie. Admiral of the Carrier) or Aviator Captain.

After that, everyone was enlisted, the highest rank was a First Sergeant. (Duke), and a few E-6s.
After that, your really cool characters were E-6s and E-5s. Then your not-so-essential and non-mission critical positions were held by E-4s and E-3s.

Granted, in real life, this is not the case. But I had to stick with the genre.
