The term for E-5 is Sergeant, sir.

MI Officer, Army Reserve, 88-97
Depends who you ask Mr Meuller
Army. Walked off the desk at Fidelity Investments to try to fly helicopters in the Army. Couldn´t get a waiver for my 20/200 vision and ended up serving 3 years in logistics with one tour in Korea. Still the best 3 years of my life.
I learned early on, do what yer supposed to do when yer supposed to do it, be where yer supposed to be when yer supposed to be there and nobody effs with you...very true. I was also a qualified EXPERT on the M-16 and M-60 the whole time I was in. Was tempted to re-up but then decided to become "PFC" again. Proud to have served and no regrets...other than my VA benefits were stripped away a few years ago because I have more than $1000 in my savings account. I won´t go there.

A sincere thanks to all in this thread. Big ups.
Thanks, but that isn't what I was looking for. I knew we had many Vets here and was curious about how many served as Officers and Enlisted. I need to know the Officers so I can respond to them with the proper protocol.
My favorite military hero is our old family doctor who delivered my brother and me. On Dec. 8, 1941, he lied about his age and enlisted in the Marine Corps at age 16 in Fort Worth. Long story short, he was on the first wave at Iwo Jima as a "forward runner".
He had bayonet scars in his legs from the hand-to-hand he did with the "Japs" on Iwo. Yet, he was always one of the nicest, most laid back guys you´d ever meet. He came back from the war, went to college and med school on the GI bill.. He ran his own little medical office in Fort Worth, raised his family and bass fished every chance he got. He lived the American dream after serving as an American hero.
