    Pretty much everyone puts rank on their shit.

    How else are they supposed to know who it goes to?

    Smack who ever bitched at you in the mouth.

    If everyone paid as much attention to OPSEC as they were supposed to CNN wouldn't know what we were going to do before the military even knew....

    I don't like it when my family puts my rank on correspondence. Simple J.E. and my last name.

    Respect the Warriors wishes and take the rank of his mail. Too easy.

    When I was with the guard, I didn't have my rank and not even branch of service on my name patch for my flight suit. just aircrew wings and name. It threw people off, thinking I might be officer, they would look for officer rank on the shoulder, nothing there either. :mamoru:

    As for mail, it doesn't really matter if you put his rank on it.
