    A quick google search came up with there are 30 generals for each division in the Army, 2 admirals for every 3 ships in the fleet and 1 airforce general for each squadron in the airforce.

    Perhaps what I posted was unclear?

    There are 30 generals for every division in the Army. I was just giving a ratio to illustrate the number of Generals in the Army. I did not say there were 30 generals IN each division. I believe there are 10 active divsions and therefore there should be 300 total generals currently in the US Army. Does this make more sense?

    Based on the link provided, the total Generals in the Army is 301.

    Why not? As I stated in the post it was a quick google search response to answer a question someone asked.

    General officers are just politicians anyways, there are very few who actually do anything meaningful

    Any idea how the stars break down? If Generals don't do shit, who does? Colonels?
