                 His rank was Corporal, not Specialist or Staff Sergeant...in the Army he'd have to have been in the service longer than he was to be Staff Sergeant.S. AustinI'm not sure  what you're on about, but Justin's outrage got the part about Pat's name being on a cross removed from the news piece. This woman may have made an innocent mistake, but you'd have to have been living under a rock not to know that Tillman was an atheist. The news station knew for sure or should have. When you're in the military you take these things seriously because it matters, a lot.

I I stand corrected. In the Air Force SSGT follows SGT and could be earned in three years. (a long time ago)
