This is a list of known military ranks in the 21st century before the Great War including the United States Armed Forces and People's Liberation Army, as well as military organizations descended from them, such as the New California Republic Army, and the Enclave Armed Forces.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Military ranks serve to create a hierarchy within militaries, police forces, and other similar agencies. Rank is typically denoted by uniform and/or uniform insignia, which is usually worn on the breast or shoulder of the uniform itself. A military hierarchy has historically proved to be advantageous to military operations for the ease of logistics, command and organization purposes; therefore, the practice has endured even through the Great War.

Ranks are split into two categories: commissioned officer and enlisted personnel; commissioned officers hold leadership and command positions while enlisted personnel make up the majority of military outfits and are under the command of commissioned officers. Commanders-in-chief are the highest rank in the military and exercises supreme command and control of a military force. Marshals and generals are a step beneath commanders-in-chief and are usually the highest rank of officer found in the field, responsible for regional operations. Privates are the lowest rank and are the main fighting force of the military. This article has been arranged to list rank holders from highest rank to lowest rank by branch of military (army, navy, air force, etc).
