this question is ectremely vauge...but just like any other branch of the military the number of people that hold each rank varies heavily on skill, recomendations, ect. But generally the ranks that have the fewest holders are the higher ranking officers, suck as generals, colonel, lt. colonels, etc. And private , PFC, L. Cpl, and the other "lower" enlisted ranks make up the bulk of the Corps. hope this helped. Aaron B. U.S.M.C. Enlisted Poolee I leave for basic June 28, 2010
