The E4 Mafia (if it existed, which it doesn't)

I've said for years that the best rans in the military were E-4 and O-4.  I've been both and had just as much fun in one as the other.  O-4 is better paid, and you have to be a bit more discrete when you are stealing taking care of the soldiers.

During Desert Storm, there was one bird colonel who thought I could do no wrong, because shit he wanted just magically appeared. I didn't tell him how badly the regulations had been skirted sometimes.

LOL, yep, being a miscreant E-4 was fun!

Don't know about today but circa 1960's an officer who pissed off the Spec 4s and PFC was in for a rough tour. We could be an asset or we could keep our mouths shut and let the LT foul his nest.
