You know why they give majors oak leaves, don't you. P.S. Congrats

I will bite.Why?So.......2d Lts get a gold bar....because they are a valuable resource but are still soft and malleable.1st Lts are a little more set in their ways and are given silver bars....a harder metal.A Capt is easily worth any two Lts so we give him two bars.Majors...get an oak leaf.....because ever since Adam and Eve we have been covering up our [male genital appendage] with leaves.
Wouldn't getting the Colonel coffee be a minor pain? After all, he does not know how he likes it. Sugar? Sweet and Low??? Milk?!!! Half and Half?!!!!!! Or do you think with his new grade he will be a major success?
The Major will delegate the task by calling the Captain and saying, "Captain, get me a coffee for the Colonel."Remember the Chain of Command goes down as well as it goes up!
Thanks for the tip.I will follow the Captain and supervise him delegate the task to the... 1st Lt. Then I will supervise the 1st Lt delegate the task to the... 2nd Lt. Then supervise the 2nd Lt delegate the task to the... NCO. Then I will rest, since NCOs always do the job right, right?
Ordered two pairs of Major grades from Vanguard last Saturday or Sunday, the 20 or 21. I thought they came OK. They arrived today... After I scanned them, I see what may be some irregularities. On 3 of them, the Field Officer line appears to be slanted. The letters CAP on one of them the letters also appear slanted, C on a lower line than A, with the P being taller higher. One of the points on one of the leaves seems either broken off or rounded in a fat way. I did not see these things until I scanned them. Otherwise they are same.
Gentlemen, I made it to Major this past weekend. Great time ahead and continue mentoring all members, peers, and most importantly the cadets. Top Latorre. Sent from my HTC Desire 530 using Tapatalk
