These individuals have already earned post-graduate degrees in their respective fields. A degree from a military academy is preferable and improves chances of promotion to some of the higher officer ranks. Time spent as an enlisted person does count towards time in service for an officer, and an O-1, O-2, or O-3 that is a prior enlisted member can receive higher pay than an equivalent officer with no enlisted time.
The Navy and Coast Guard use rank titles and insignia that are different from the other branches. These ranks are divided into three categories that correlate to the level of responsibility officers within that rank usually hold.
O-4 to O-6 are field grade officers or mid-grade, and O-7 and up are general officers or flag officers. Lieutenant Junior Grade Insignia: Rear Admiral Lower Half Insignia: Two Inch Stripe Below Device. Rear Admiral Upper Half Insignia: An additional rank beyond O will sometimes be granted in wartime.
Warrant officers fall between commissioned officers and enlisted personnel and is currently not a common rank for personnel to hold. They are usually skilled technicians serving specific roles within the military. Warranting personnel for this purpose is similar to direct commissions for doctors and chaplains, but in technical roles rather than professional roles. Warrant officers outside of these positions are in leadership roles similar to the ones held by commissioned officers and often have experience as enlisted personnel.
The last time warrant officer was a widely held rank was during the Vietnam War because the Army needed more helicopter pilots than they were able to train. The growth of cyber warfare and the need for computer technicians and more flexible career paths to retain enlisted personnel could lead to greater use of warrant officers.
The duties previously accomplished with warrant officers were divided among senior enlisted personnel and company grade officers. Should the Air Force need to utilize this rank again, they are authorized to do so. Single Black Square on a Silver Bar. Two Black Squares on a Silver Bar. Three Black Squares on a Silver Bar.

Navy and Coast Guard: The vast majority of service members are enlisted. They are the backbone of the military and perform most of the day to day work. The barrier for entry is much lower because enlisted members fill such a wide range of jobs. However, a large percentage of the nation is unable to enlist.
Potential enlisted personnel must have good health with no conditions that will prevent them from performing their duties and reasonable physical fitness. Early rank advancement is based largely on time in service and time in rank, although there are opportunities to achieve certain ranks quicker.
