An E-9 in the Army is the pay grade that denotes the rank of Sergeant Major, Command Sergeant Major, and Command Sergeant Major of the Army.
E... what? There are nine enlisted pay grades, E1 through E9, plus the rank of Sergeant Major of the Army, which is technically E9, but gets paid at a higher scale than other E9 ranks. Time in service is also a factor in determining a soldier's base pay.
Sergeant Major is E9 which is the highest NCO "pay grade" in the marines. Command Sergeant Major is E9 as well but has more seniority than just a Sergeant Major. Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps is also E9 but has the most seniority of any NCO in the marines. E9 means that you are enlisted and you are rank 9. E9 is used to represent the pay grade.
