I am a Major with the United States Army, which is just above Captian. It is a commissioned position, with the the benefits of being [O-4]
[Jokingly] Major is also the rank where an officer's career typically stalls -- it's a near stereotype in the Army to find the brooding major who's been passed over for attending war colleges and posts that are required for further advancement. This stereotype, I'm sure has relevance on Major Eaton -- who I am sure only gets the best reviews.
