Okay, so I'm looking for a graphic that someone posted a LONG time ago. It was an image of the stars and stripes that correspond to each ranking of the military.

Anyone know where I can find it? *big hopeful smile*

Small correction to the chart: Sergeant is Sergeant-Major's stripe with two stars, which makes Denny Brosh one rank below Fury.

Hawkeye's/Havoc's stripes with three starts is Captain (Tai'i). Sloth/Juliet Douglas was Captain during the Ishvar war (Spoon mistakenly translated it to Colonel).

Spelling nitpicks include sousa = shousa, chusa = chuusa, socho = souchou, shoi = shoui, chui = chuui, junsho = junshou, shochu = shoushou, chujo = chuujou and taisho = taishou.

Hm, most of the spelling nitpicks seem to be differences in romanization. An o with a bar over it is usually translated the same as ou, for instance. And you can't do an o with a bar on it with a standard keyboard or html. Romanization is so strange just in general that it's pretty difficult to point to a single way and say 'that's right'.

After a quick Google scouring: Sergeant/Sergeant-Major's stripe with 1 star = Corporal (Gochou), 0 stars = Lance Corporal (Heichou).

For Hakuro, it should be 'shougun'(将軍/General). That's what he's been called in the manga and the anime. (And Major-General and General are two totally different ranks)

(I think the taisho definition is the one for the rank of General in the Western military. Shougun is the one usually associated with the japanese military. One should bear in mind that most of the ranks mentioned in FMA are more defined with the words used in the japanese military and not that of the western ones although, some just share the same definition when describing any military. ^^)

Hakuro is a shoushou, Major General. Shogun is a general title for all of the generals, from Brigadier General (junshou) to General (taishou).

I didn't acually make that chart (I think it was wabisuke who did.) I just found it a long time ago on the community. ^^;;;
