mg BS: Question about military rank (44) RE: BS: Question about military rank 17 Nov 19

if you actually retire, like put in 20 years, or had medical retirement or whatever, and are officially retired, you are entitled to whatever you are entitled to. That includes respect from other former military at least. I don't know the exact rules, but you will often see Sgt. Major (ret.) or General (ret.). I think the press will have their own guidelines. If your life was on the line for 20 or 30 or whatever years, in my book you can call yourself whatever you like, although others do not have to go along with it. And we were trained very well to respect the troops. I personally would not call any retired or discharged veteran an arsewipe. But that is just me. Or just I.
