The U.S. Navy's rank structure is made up of 3 primary groups, withvariations on each: Enlisted - The enlisted community form thebackbone of the Navy, and are responsible for performing most ofthe shipboard or base operations on a daily basis. Enlisted sailorsare technical specialists in their fi…elds, and it is the primaryfunction of senior enlisted sailors to help train junior officers,as well as to lead and train junior enlisted sailors. Warrant Officer - Warrant Officers arecommissioned officers with a focus on a specific technical area notcovered by regular commissioned line officers, who have a broaderbased focus concerning operations. They are typically seniorenlisted sailors who have received commissions. Their rank insigniashows their specialty. Commissioned Officers - Commissioned Officers fallinto 3 groups: Unrestricted Line, Restricted Line, and Staff Corps.Unrestricted Line Officers are the ones who command and lead combatunits. Restricted Line Officers are those who perform specificfunctions within those commands, e.g., Engineers. Staff CorpsOfficers are those in other specialty areas - Chaplain Corps,Medical, Supply, etc. ENLISTED RANKS For the first 3 ranks, the designation is based on the sailor'sarea of training (strikers); regular operations, engineering, oraviation. At E-4 (Petty Officer 3rd Class, the Navy'sNon-Commissioned Officer ranks), the individual rate specialty isdesignated on their rank insignia. The following information ispresented as paygrade, rank, and insignia, from lowest to highest: Strikers Strikers are sailors who haven't chosen a specific career path, butare in one of 3 technical disciplines - Seaman, Fireman(Engineering Rates), and Airman (Aviation Rates). The stripes areWhite, Red, and Green respectively. E-1 - Seaman/Fireman/Airman Recruit (SR, FR, AR) -1 stripe E-2 - Seaman/Fireman/Airman Apprentice (SA, FA,AA) - 2 stripes E-3 - Seaman/Fireman/Airman (SN, FN, AN)- 3stripes Non-Commissioned Officers (Petty Officers) E-4 - Petty Officer 3rd Class - 1 Chevron E-5 - Petty Officer 2nd Class - 2 Chevrons E-6 - Petty Officer 1st Class - 3 Chevrons E-7 - Chief Petty Officer - 3 Chevrons w/cap E-8 - Senior Chief Petty Officer - 3 Chevronsw/cap, 1 silver star E-9 - Master Chief Petty Officer - 3 Chevronsw/cap, 2 silver stars The ranks of Command Master Chief, Force Master Chief or MasterChief Petty Officer of the Navy still hold the paygrade of E-9;however, their positions entitle them to distinguishing rankinsignia above other E-9's. The standard insignia for a MasterChief is 3 Chevrons w/cap, 2 silver stars, with a small ratingbadge as part of the overall insignia. For Command Master Chief,the rating insignia is replaced with one large silver star inaddition to the standard 2 small silver stars of the rank; ForceMaster Chief, 1 large gold star and 2 small gold stars; and MasterChief Petty Officer of the Navy, 1 large gold star and 3 small goldstars. The designation is presented as rate and rank, with any warfaredesignation afterward. For example, my rate/rank/warfaredesignation was STS1/SS, which stands for Sonar Technician(Submarines) First Class, Submersible Ships (Submarine WarfareQualified). For Recruits and Strikers, their stripes indicate the area they'retraining in: White for regular sailors, Red for Engineering rates,Green for Aviation rates. For Petty Officers, Chevrons and 4-year hash marks red (red, wornon blues, and blue, worn on whites, worn on the left sleeve) untilthe sailor achieves 12 consecutive years of Good Conduct, at whichpoint they are entitled to gold chevrons and gold sleeve stripes (4years for each stripe). CHIEF WARRANT OFFICER RANKS Chief Warrant Officers are taken from the senior enlisted ranks,and are members who have completed the CWO program. After acceptinga commission, they serve in their particular technical specialty,unlike commissioned line officers. W-2 - Chief Warrant Officer 2 - Black Epaulet withtechnical specialty insignia, 2 vertical gold bars over blue field. W-3 - Chief Warrant Officer 3 - Black Epaulet withtechnical specialty insignia, 3 vertical gold bars over blue field. W-4 - Chief Warrant Officer 4 - Black Epaulet withtechnical specialty insignia, 2 horizontal gold bars over bluefield. W-5 - Chief Warrant Officer 5 - Black Epaulet withtechnical specialty insignia, 4 horizontal gold bars over bluefield. COMMISSIONED OFFICER RANKS O-1 - Ensign - Black Epaulet w/ 1 gold star and 1"gold stripe O-2 - Lieutenant (Junior Grade (Lt.(JG)) - BlackEpaulet w/ 1 gold star, one 1" gold stripe, and one 1/2" goldstripe. O-3 - Lieutenant - Black Epaulet w/ 1 gold star,two 1" gold stripes. O-4 - Lieutenant Commander - Black Epaulet w/ 1gold star, two 1" gold stripes, and one 1/2" gold stripe. O-5 - Commander - Black Epaulet w/ 1 gold star,three 1" gold stripes. O-6 - Captain - Black Epaulet w/ 1 gold star, 4 1"gold stripes. O-7 - Rear Admiral (Lower Half) - Gold Epaulet w/1 silver star. O-8 - Rear Admiral - Gold Epaulet w/ 2 silverstars. O-9 - Vice Admiral - Gold Epaulet w/ 3 silverstars. O-10 - Admiral - Gold Epaulet w/ 4 silver stars. O-11 - Fleet Admiral - Gold Epaulet w/ 5 silverstars (currently inactive) Line Officers have fouled anchor insignia (Admirals) or stars/goldrank bars on their epaulets, while Staff Corps Officers will havetheir specialty insignia on their epaulet instead, e.g., a goldcaduceus on a Medical Officer's epaulet along with rank bars. The 4-Star rank of Admiral is actually an appointed rank that comeswith the position of appointment. Admirals considered for 4-Starpositions are nominated by the President and confirmed by theSenate. For example, the Chief of Naval Operations and Vice Chiefof Naval Operations are both 4-Star ranks, but after they leave,they revert to their previous rank. For retirement pay purposesthough, they receive the rate of their highest rank. The reason that 4-Star Admirals revert to their previous ranks isthat by law, there is a specific cap limit on how many Admiralsthere can be, and that number is 216. Of those, only 16.3% can beof 2-Star rank, and of that percentage, only 25% can hold 4-Starrank positions. This equates to 9 Admirals. The 4-Star position includes the Coast Guard, Public Health ServiceCommissioned Corps, and NOAA Commissioned Corps for cap limitpurposes. By law, several positions are reserved for 4-StarAdmirals: Chief of Naval Operations Vice Chief of Naval Operations Director, Naval Nuclear Propulsion (NavalReactors) Commandant of the Coast Guard Public Health Service Commissioned Corps (ifappoin ted) Some positions, however, don't count toward the limit - e.g.,Director of Central Intelligence, Joint Command (Supreme AlliedCommander, Europe, etc.). Of course in time of war or emergency thePresident can waive the cap rules. The 5-Star rank of Fleet Admiral is a ceremonial one, and hasn'tbeen held for about 44 years. The rank is held until the persondies - the last one to hold the position was Fleet Admiral ChesterW. Nimitz, who died in February 1966.

Unlike Enlisted ranks, Commissioned Naval Officers advance by a different set of standards, though time at current rank is one thing that both have in common. Officers, depending upon their career path (Line Officer, Engineer Officer, JAG, Medical, etc.) must fulfill certain responsibilities, as …well as have the support and recommendation of their Commanding Officer. Evaluations are much more important for rank progression for Commissioned Officers than they are for Non-Coms, in which Evals are only part of the overall advancement percentage. Officer Evals are essentially what makes or breaks whether or not they progress or not. A single mistake can literally ruin an Officer's career - I've seen it more than once. For example, on a Nuclear Powered vessel, mistakes of any kind are not tolerated - period, and on the rare occasion they happen, they are dealt with severely. I remember a Lt. who missed a clerical mistake on a tag for an engine room component. The resulting letter in is record ruined any hope he had for advancement. Of course the fact that the error was caught be a Naval Reactors inspector on a surprise audit didn't help his situation much either.... Fitness evaluations (FitReps, or Fitness Reports) are also a large part of an Officer's advancement. Each service record includes a full top-bottom picture of the Officer in question, in full uniform, standing at attention. The Navy does not want slackers in command, and Commanding Officers are who the public will see if that ship is someday in the news for whatever reason. Unfair? Maybe, but there's a lot more to it than you might think. While it's technically supposed to be as important as the overall evaluation, the FitRep is in fact one of the biggest factors for advancement. Why? If you're not able to maintain yourself and your own fitness, how are you going to be able to command a vessel or shore installation? Would you want someone who can't control his own habits in charge of a nuclear powered warship with nuclear weapons? Standards are very stringent for certain career paths, and they need to be for a very good reason. Being in command means being perfect, or at least appearing to be. A Captain of ship at sea is God, literally, to those on board, and the Navy cannot afford to promote those who aren't capable. While the evaluations and selections might at times seem biased, (it's a fact that Academy graduates get better positions than ROTC grads do) the system has proven that it works. It's a bit different for non Line Officers - JAG's, MO's, Supply Officers, etc., those that aren't command responsible for the most part. While there of course are those in those fields that command, there aren't as many as there are Line Officers, and the Navy isn't as concerned, at least in most areas. In those areas where the command might be of an extremely critical nature, you can bet the requirements are every bit as stringent as they are for Line Officers. So - 1. Time in current Rank 2. Responsibilities/Command/Supervision at that Rank 3. CO / XO Recommendations & Evaluations of the Officer at that Rank 4. The Officer's FitRep. 5. No negatives in the Service Record. It only takes one to derail a career. ( Full Answer )

This question cannot be answered sensibly. A square foot is a measure of area, with dimensions [L 2 ]. A cubic yard (cy) is a measure of volume, with dimensions [L 3 ]. Basic dimensional analysis teaches that you cannot convert between measures with different dimensions such as these without addit…ional information. ( Full Answer )
1 sf is the area represented by a square that has a length of 12 inches (1ft) and a width 12 inches (1ft) This area does NOT have to be a square, it can be any 2 dimensional shape. ----- 1 sf could also mean 1 significant figure. That is a value rounded in such a way that it contains only one no…n-zero digit. For example: 4321 = 4000 or 21.34 = 20 or 0.0063 = 0.006 ( Full Answer )
The rank of Commodore isn't an actual Navy rank in modern times, and hasn't been since the days of sailing vessels. It's an honorary title, usually given to a senior Navy Captain in charge of a Squadron of Ships or Submarines. Given that Squadron unit commands are commanded by either Captains or …Commanders, the title is given to the Squadron Commander as a way of distinguishing him/her as the Senior officer in command. This applies whether or not there are Captains in the Squadron who are actually senior in rank (though that rarely occurs). ( Full Answer )
"Drivers" in the US Navy carry any and all ranks. Consider also that there are drivers for all types of equipment, and each has his own rating in the Navy. Rank has little to do with rating, MOS, or jobs in the military.

Not SSK3c, but SK3c is the old rate designation for Ship's Storekeeper, 3rd Class. The Storekeeper rate, one of the oldest in the Navy, has always used the designator SK. Today the rate/rank would be designated SK3.
The rank is E-6 not V-6. The Naval E-6 rank is Petty Officer First Class.
It depends entirely on the size of the vessel and power plant. For nuclear vessels, the minimum rank requirement is Lieutenant Commander. Smaller vessels with conventional power can use anyone from a Petty Officer to a Lieutenant.

The rank of Warrant Officer 1 (WO1 (W1) was discontinued by the Navy in 1975. The reason was that senior enlisted personnel would actually lose money on their payscale when promoted to WO1, leaving not much of an incentive to advance to the CWO ranks. The Navy now commissions all its CWO beginnin…g with CWO2, and the pay scales have also caught up so that when retiring, it's more than your prior senior enlisted pay would've been. ( Full Answer )

A Chief Select is still a First Class (E-6) until they go through the ceremony and are actually frocked (promoted) to E-7. Of course, like any frocking, it doesn't mean you'll actually start getting paid for the rank right away.
STG3 stands for Sonar Technician (Guns), or a surface ship Sonar Tech, 3rd Class Petty Officer. The military paygrade is E-4. The ST rating is split into Submarine and Surface specialties, STS (Sonar Technician (Submarines) and STG. This is primarily due to the fact that for surface ASW combat v…essels, Sonar is more of an ancillary function (they rely more on ASW aircraft, e.g., helos and P3's) for acoustic information, whereas Submarine Sonar is a primary function 24/7 while the boat is underway. While the basic sonar training is essentially the same, once you get into advanced maintenance school, it changes considerably, as the STS rating is much more involved and complex. ( Full Answer )
There is no Navy rate or rank "SW"; SW is a warfare specialty designation that stands for Surface Warfare, or one who has completed qualifications for the SW badge. It's equivalent to a submariner's dolphins badge, or an aviator's wings.
First off, we need to know the location of these stripes. Are they two arched over three "V's" ? Those would be a chief (enlisted rating). If they are long stripes running diagonal on the sleeve, they represent time in service...ie, each one indicates 4 years of service. Hope this helps.
SO is the rate designation for Special Operator; the 1 is the rank designation for a Navy First Class Petty Officer. An SO1 is a Special Operator First Class.
