Yes, but I don't think it really counts there, since a JROTC C/Maj is a diamond, unless it was senior staff.

I think hes talking bout his SMI (or equivalent)

As a Colonel you soar over military masses, hence the eagle. As a General, you are, obviously, a star. Does that answer your question?"

"Yes," said the Second Lieutenant, "but what about Majors and Lieutenant Colonels?"

"That goes waaaay back in history ... to the Garden of Eden even. You see we've always covered our pricks with leaves."


I feel the need for the obligitory *ba-dum-ching* drum noise at the end of this joke.
