Does the Marine Corps have Warrant Officers?

I'm sure that's what the enlisted men said to one. But I was thinking more along the lines of a superior officer, or a civilian. Just being polite.

I think an superior officer would call him Mister. A civilian if not familiar with the ranks and uniforms might call them Sir. 

I remember being in the Nashville airport when I was in high school in my Military Academy uniform being saluted by recent Army boot camp graduates. I asked them why they were saluting us and they said they were told if the uniforms had stripes down the legs they should salute. I told them that we were just high school and that they didn't need to salute. Can't see the stripes on the pants but they are there.

No doubt the combination of chevrons and trouser/sleeve stripes bamboozled them.

We used to get saluted when I was in OCS because we wore shiny brass on our fatigue collars. I never bothered to correct anybody. Just returned the salute.

My brother told me a story one time about being chewed out by this High School ROTC captain. Elder brudder had not saluted him, and since the high school punk was a captain, and my brother was only a lance corporal, he should have.:angry:

 

Elder brudder laughed at him.
