Asked in William Shakespeare, Macbeth
What do we learn about the sergeant in Act 1 Scene 2 of Macbeth?
Malcolm says "This is the sergeant who like a good and hardy soldier fought 'gainst my captivity." We know that he was in the battle and saved Malcolm, who must have retired from the battlefield to the camp. We know that he was injured ("What bloody man is that?") and that he's longwinded and sarcastic (see his sarcastic answer to "Dismay'd not this our captains Macbeth and Banquo?") and that's about all.

When will the fy13 master sergeant promotion list come out?
A sergeant is responsible for what?
There are several grades of Sergeant.. there's Sergeant, Staff Sergeant, Sergeant First Class (Army), Gunnery Sergeant (Marine Corps), etc.. A basic Sergeant is typically responsible for leading a fire team (four persons, including themselves). I've seen a lot of Marine Corps Squad leaders who've held the rank of Sergeant, though, and some in the Army (although they were usually eligible for promotion to Staff Sergeant).

Asked in US Army
What is the role of a corporal?
Corporals are a bit uncommon. Basically, they're the juniormost noncommissioned officer. Most personnel go from Specialist directly to Sergeant. However, someone might be pinned Corporal first if they don't have enough time in grade/service for promotion to Sergeant, and their chain of command wants to promote them, or else they can't make the required number of points for promotion to Sergeant. As for their exact role, it depends in part of what exactly their occupation in the military is.
Do correspondence course in the army help promotion?
Yes. You receive promotion points for completed correspondence courses. When I was promoted to Sergeant, points for the Infantry were particularly low, and all they really had to do was qualify with their weapon, pass their PT test, and do alright at the promotion board. Points for Combat Medics weren't so low, however, and I needed everything I could get in order to have enough points for promotion.

The '3' indicates skill level 3, which would be the rank of Staff Sergeant. A Staff Sergeant would be a squad leader, or a Staff Sergeant with seniority or who is close to promotion to Sergeant First Class might fill the role of Platoon Sergeant. They might also work as a staff NCO in a battalion/brigade/division/etc. shop, which wouldn't be a leadership position.

Asked in Military Terminology
What rank is one rank lower than sergeant?
In the U.S. Army, the rank below Sergeant is either Corporal or Specialist. Corporals have leadership responsibilities, and specialists have skill responsibilities with fewer leadership tasks. In the Air Force the rank below sergeant is Senior Airman, and in the Marine Corps it is a Corporal. In the American Army, a sergeant was the 3rd rank in promotion and wore 3 stripes. However, "sergeant" can be a generic term for any non-commissioned officer above 3 stripes. Each rank above sergeant has the word "sergeant" in its rank title, such as "Sergeant Major", etc.

It depends on the individual situation and can vary greatly. In general, each promotion will offer more active service longevity. Below are some general guidelines for enlisted and officers. Enlisted: Enlistments are generally offered in 4 to 6 year increments. Until you reach the rank of Staff Sergeant (E-6), your active service may be terminated if not offered reinlistment. Once you have been promoted to Staff Sergeant (and have entered the ranks of the Staff Non-Commissioned Officers), you will be afforded the privelage of continuing your active service until retirement eligible at 20 years of active service, at which time you will face mandatory retirement. If selected for promotion to Gunnery Sergent (E-7) prior to reaching the 20 year mark, you may remain on active duty until twice non-selected to promotion to First Sergeant / Master Sergeant (E-8). If selected for promotion to First Sergeant / Master Sergeant (E-8), you may remain on active duty until twice non-selected to promotion to Sergeant Major / Master Gunnery Sergeant (E-9). Upon promotion to Sergeant Major / Master Gunnery Sergeant (E-9), you may remain on active duty until you are no longer qualified for active service, or until 40 years of active service. Officer: Initial commissions are generally offered for a length of 3 to 7 years, depending on your commissioning source e.g. OCS, ROTC, Service Academy, MECEP, ECP, BOOST, Direct Commsion, etc. Until you reach the rank of Major (O-4), your active service may be terminated if not offered career designation.

Asked in Macbeth
How is Macbeth's character presented to the readers when we first meet him What assumption can you make about why Shakespeare has represented him in this manner?
Your first assumption, that Shakespeare presented anything to readers, is wrong. Shakespeare wrote his plays entirely for the purpose of having them performed and watched; he did not expect them to be read by anyone apart from the actors performing them. But your question is still germane if one considers how he introduces his character to the audience. We first hear about Macbeth from the witches and then at length from the bloody sergeant who describes his conduct in battle. The sergeant praises his skill and vigour as a soldier; it is clear that he is a hero to the sergeant, and his personal skill and that of Banquo have saved Scotland from invasion. We have that picture in our minds when we first see Macbeth step on stage, with his comrade-in-arms, returning from their victorious battle. This simplistic picture of Macbeth is immediately complicated by his reaction to the witches. As confident and successful as he may be on a battlefield, he does not carry that confidence into his dealings with weird and supernatural phenomena. Banquo does; he addresses the witches with confidence, even truculence. Shakespeare has set up expectations about the kind of man Macbeth is and then gets his audience's attention when he does not conform to those expectations. Surprisingly, when off the battlefield, Macbeth is anything but confident, and is prone to anxiety and fear, as becomes clear as the play goes on.
