Does a 5 star General exist in the Marines?
Asked in US Military
In all of the U S military including army navy marines and air force how many 5 star generals have there been?
The five star rank insignia wasn't created until 1944. Since then, the Army has had five persons to hold the rank of General of the Army, and the Navy has had four persons to hold the Admiral of the Navy Rank. The only General of the Air Force is one of the five people to be promoted to General of the Army - Henry H. Arnold, who promoted to five stars in the Army, then transferred to the Air Force after its formation. So, your total would be nine. The rank General of the Army predates the five star insignia by quite some time. However, I've only counted those who've been promoted to the rank since the five star insignia came into effect. The Marines and Coast Guard have no equivalent rank. Both are administered under the Department of the Navy (although the Coast Guard falls under the Navy only in wartime).

Who was the top US General in World War 1?
John "Black Jack" Pershing was promoted to the rank of General of the Armies, making him not only the highest ranking American General of the war, but the highest ranking American military officer ever, being equivalent to a six star general. He was authorized to design is own rank insignia, but never wore more than four stars. He replaced British and French generals who previously been conducting the war in France.
Asked in Submarines
What letters are placed after an officer's name to indicate he is a Supply Officer who is Qualified in Submarines?
The Warfare Designation letters for those like myself who are or have been Qualified in Submarines is "SS". For example, my own rate/rank is STS1(SS), which stands for "Sonar Technician, Submarines, First Class(Submersible Ships)" Generally, specialty officers (officers who aren't Line Officers, such as Doctors or Pork Chops (Supply Officers)) are titled with their particular specialty as letters after their rank and name. For example, a Supply Lt. named Donald Mason, who is Qualified in Submarines, would be: Lt. Donald Mason, SO(SS) - where "SO" denotes Supply Officer, and SS is Submersible Ships, or Qualified in Submarines. Specialty officers also wear insignia denoting their particular area of expertise on their collar along with their rank insignia. For example, Line Officers wear rank insignia on both collars (a Lt. would wear railroad tracks on both sides) but an SO would wear Lt. bars on one side and the Supply Corps insignia on the other collar.
Asked in Industries and Professions
Higher rank than captain in the navy?
At one time it was commodore who was in charge of a warship squadron, but the rank is not used anymore. I think that now rear admiral is the next highest over captain. The foregoing is correct. The title of Commodore is used to designate someone who is the commander of a number of units, such aircraft or ship squadrons. The rank of Commodore has been replaced by Rear Admiral (lower half) and the insignia is two stars or a broad band and a smaller stripe on the sleeve.

Asked in US Marine Corps
How long has the USMC been around?
The USMC traces its roots to the Continental Marines, founded on November 10, 1775. This force was disbanded in 1783, since with the end of the Revolutionary War it was no longer needed. The USMC regards November 10 as its "birthday". The "United States Marine Corps", under that name, was created by the US Congress on July 11, 1798, in preparation for a possible war with France.
