    Not sure if this belongs in the off topic or Academy/ Military News forum - decided to go with it here. Sadly it appears that the personnel system has finally caught up with a favorite Soldier - Duffelblog reports that CPT America has been promoted to Major. Even the hardest of Infantrymen gets stuck as a staff toad sooner or later. http://www.duffelblog.com/2016/05/captain-america-moved-to-staff-position/

    Everyone eventually rides the desk. I'm sure a Jr. will come along.

    Time on the staff desk whets the appetite for field operations and erases every memory of the crazy stuff your sailors, Marines, soldiers, airmen, Coast Guardsmen can do, plus the sheer exhaustion and griminess (not to mention harm's way moments) of being operational.
