In two years, you'd be a Specialist (regardless of MOS), provided you didn't do something which got you busted down. As for serving as a paramedic in the Army... nowadays, the MOS is called "Healthcare Specialist" (68W), and requires a basic EMT licence. There were personnel with this MOS who served… as EMTs on-post - however, prior to the reorganisation which did away with the old 91B (Combat Medic) MOS and folded it into 68W, most of these personnel did not even possess a basic EMT licence. As the trend towards privatising services for the military grows, it's likely EMT services are performed by civilian contractors now, although I can't say with 100% certainty. (MORE)

Usually the highest American rank is a 4-star General, who is called "General". With the massive amount of troops in World War II, the US created the rank of "General of the Army", "General of the Air Force", "Fleet Admiral". These ranks are "5 star Generals" and are reserved for use during wartime…. An American "5 star General" is the same rank as a "Field Marshal" A rank which is used by a number of European countries. During World War I, General Pershing was awarded the title of "General of the Armies". While his rank was still a "4 star General", by title General Marshal outranked the "5 star Generals" of World War II. In a like manner, Admiral George Dewey was promoted to "Admiral of the Navy", a title that made him senior in rank to the "Fleet Admiral" Thus General Pershing and Admiral George Dewey, both would be considered a "6 star General". But its a rank that has never been formalized. Just to cover all bets, Congress promoted General George Washington to "General of the Armies" on July 4, 1976 on the 200th birthday of the US. (MORE)

Second Lieutenant - you're going to start at the very bottom level of officer ranks, and nothing you do in West Point is going to change that. The only way you'll start off at a higher rank is through a process such as Direct Commission. In that instance, you would already have experience in your pr…ofession on the civilian side, and your rank in the military would be a reflection of that experience. But, going through West Point, you're going to be a cherry 2LT, and that's really all there is to it. (MORE)

The President is generally considered the highest ranking person though it can be argued that senior Senate members out rank the president because of their seniority and how short presidents stay in office
The US has had a lot of small conflicts that involved military action, but all presidents except for Madison, Polk, Lincoln, McKinley, Wilson, F. Roosevelt, Truman, Lyndon Johnson. G. H. W. Bush , George W. Bush and Obama either served only in peace time or had only brief periods when they called on… the military for foreign or domestic disputes. I did not count Indian Wars which broke out from time to time but usually did not last long. So, you could say the 31 presidents served only in peace time. (MORE)

Adolf Shiklgruber attained the rank of corporal in the German army. Much later, he took the name Adolf Hitler, and became Chancellor of Germany, and later, Commander-in-Chief of the German military forces.
When the war began the General in Chief was Winfield Scott, 75years old, in the position since 1839, an authentic hero of the Warof 1812 and the genius of the Mexican War. Ruthlessly humiliated bythe arrogant George McClellan, Scott resigned from the Army in 1862(after 54 years of service) and was r…eplaced by McClellan. As itdeveloped few shared McClellan's extremely high opinion of himself,once they had a chance to see him in inaction. McClellan wasrelieved as General in Chief later in 1862, though he continued fora time as commander of the Army of the Potomac, the principal Unionfield army in the east. Henry W. Halleck, who had claimed creditfor the achievements of his subordinant Grant, was brought east andtried as General in Chief for a year or so, though he immediatelyshowed his lack of capacity. Finally, Halleck was replaced byUlysses S. Grant, who rather than make his headquarters inWashington, stayed with the Army of the Potomac, though GeorgeMeade remained in command of that Army, under Grant. (MORE)
