The poster should not have the rank of Private, the traitor Bradley Manning is not entitled to rank anymore!

Rank?
.... in more ways than one!

So in "soldiers" world these lads depicted in Panarama

this past week murdering unarmed Catholics in the north maintain rank

like Lt Calley of My Lai massacre fame

Nov. 25, 2013

U.S. Army / AP
I’m usually hesitant to celebrate Thanksgiving Day. After all, the Puritans of the Massachusetts Bay Colony systematically terrorized and slaughtered the very same Pequot tribe that assisted the first English refugees to arrive at Plymouth Rock. So, perhaps ironically, I’m thankful that I know that, and I’m also thankful that there are people who seek out, and usually find, such truths. I’m thankful for people who, even surrounded by millions of Americans eating turkey during regularly scheduled commercial breaks in the Green Bay and Detroit football game; who, despite having been taught, often as early as five and six years old, that the “helpful natives” selflessly assisted the “poor helpless Pilgrims” and lived happily ever after, dare to ask probing, even dangerous, questions.
