wooman you are precisely correct--and I wasn't referring to this particular individual--was referring to the guy who tried to sound smart about something he clearly knows nothing about... But Yes, you are correct a enlisted soldier cannot EVER achieve the rank of Major-not without a trip through OCS and college... 10-15 years enlisted should get you into the Staff Sergeant/Master Sergeant/Gunnery Sergeant ranks...

Hey don11817! Thanks for being totally smart about the military! While you are correct, it very clearly states that LCpl Heroman is, in fact, a Lance Corporal. That, sir, means he is enlisted, which means that it would not take him a mere 10-15 years to reach the rank of Major.
