This is a list of known military ranks in the 21st century before the Great War including the United States Armed Forces and People's Liberation Army, as well as military organizations descended from or emulated them, such as the Enclave Department of the Army and the New California Republic Army.

Overview

Military ranks serve to create a hierarchy within militaries, police forces, and other similar agencies. Rank is typically denoted by uniform and/or uniform insignia, which is usually worn on the breast or shoulder of the uniform itself. A military hierarchy has historically proved to be advantageous to military operations for the ease of logistics, command, and organization purposes; therefore, the practice has endured even after the Great War.

Military ranks are split into two categories: commissioned officers and enlisted personnel; commissioned officers hold leadership and command positions while enlisted personnel make up the majority of military outfits and are under the command of commissioned officers. Commander-in-chief is a position used to denote individuals who exercise supreme control over a military. It is not an official military rank, rather it is a title used to identify a head of state's authority over the national armed forces. Marshals, generals, and admirals are the highest ranking officers of a military, responsible for regional operations in their respective branches. Privates, seamen, and airmen are the lowest ranks and are the main fighting force of the military. This article has been arranged to list rank holders from highest rank to lowest rank by the branch of the military (Army, Navy, Air Force, etc).
