Enlisted/NCO * Warrant Officers * OFFICER * Uniform FAQ

Ranks in the Marine Corps are listed below, with the insignia applied to the uniform of each person holding that rank. This resource illustrates the typical chain of command and unit designations. The rank of the officer commanding the unit, as well as the unit strength, are typical for units most commonly encountered, and considerable variation exists in practice, particularly with respect to lower echelon Naval forces.

Note: Since the Fleet is the senior service, Fleet officers will be accorded first rank over other officers at the same rank. In other words, the most junior Naval Captain is senior to every Marine Corps Captain, and the most junior Marine Corps Captain is senior to every Air Corps Captain. Within a service branch, date of commission or promotion determines who is senior and commanding.
