I get it I was honorably discharged as an E-5 and understood very well the way in which the system worked.

If I had it to do all over again, no way would I have gone the enlisted route. The system is geared for officers to have a career not the enlisted ranks (except for the few who actually get to the E ranks as you said that run it).
Some soldier has to stay in long enough to make sergeant major. He is a good example of a lifer.

When I was stationed in GA a group of us were at a ceremony for newly commissioned officers and most were young people right out of college. An E7 in my unit who'd done multiple Iraq tours and had the Airborne patch walked by a new officer and the punk had the nerve to demand he be saluted.

He's lucky said E7 didn't lay him out right there. I recall someone being told to **** off.
