    Probably just a bottom-of-the-totem-pole thing, same as with any other military service. When I was in the Navy I received more than enough special treatment as a junior sailor.

      2LT's have more than enough jokes directed at them.

            It's not that bad.

            It's a lot like a corporal.

              Of course! Butterbars are at the bottom too, and I look forward to becoming one just so I can take the beatings. Different totem pole maybe, but rock-stinking-bottom nonetheless.

                Rock bottom of their totempole, but still officers none the less. Treat them that way.

                  I have been both and both have their ups and downs. The only common factor is the NCO's, don't think that they just mess with Privates. =0

                    Are you telling me to treat them that way? I'm looking to BE one of them, you don't seriously think I've dished out abuse on them or would be willing to put up with it myself, did you?

                    I'm a veteran for pete's sake, please give me more credit than that.



                    I'm messing with you btw, don't take this as being argumentative!

                    HAPPY VETERAN'S DAY to everyone too!

                      I really do feel sorry for a lot of the butter bars I've worked with. You have the experience of an E-1, but still all the responsibility of a commissioned officer. You're just as new and dumb as any private fresh out of BCT, but yet all the privates look to you for leadership. That's a heavy weight to bear, I'd imagine.

                          That was the HARDEST part of becoming an officer... Losing my stripes. I got to be a SGT, not have to deal with the bottom and the jokes and getting responsibility... Then got pinned and all that went right out the window! lol

                                I know sheer brilliance.

                                Here is the problem, 80% of communication is non-verbal. Thus it is too easy to misinterpret writtten communication.

                                If you found this offensive, just drive on.
