Can Americans please explain to me, what makes a person decided to become an army "officer", go to a military academy, or do instructor courses instead of just signing up for the Army and doing boot camp? Is it because of pay and benefits (ie; greed)? Do they genuinely think they can make lasting contributions to the military victories?
What Im interested in here is "military potential" : do high-ranking career officers go to the battlefield, the front-line? If not; are they more valuable in a war? can they apply for rangers, green berets, etc, even if they didnt go trough the common-soldier route?
>and also are there equivalent ranks to the normal army within S.Os groups?

    Well for starters, it's convenient to have officers with a good grasp of English grammar.

          Just curious. Did you see the old fort or just the modern facilities?

            Just the modern facilities but we didn't go inside or anything if that's what you're thinking. It's a history + general info tour

    Answering your vomit in order of questions:
    1. It's a completely different job being an O, rather than E.
    2. That's mostly E who transition to O.
    3. Literally more so than any E, thus why an O is paid more. Sure the E wins the day and makes great movies, but it was the General and his staff that told E to fight there and run logistics to support the E in the first place.
    4. Yes, but not really. A LTC is the highest rank that is "on the front" and even that's a stretch. Officers lead, you can't lead if you're shooting. My plt considered it a failure if I (an O) had to shoot because they weren't doing their job properly enough to allow me to do mine.
    5. neither O or E is "more valuable"from a human perspective, but yeah an O is more "valuable" because there are fewer of them and harder to replace.
    6. Yes you can apply to SOF and ranger, typically as a senior lt/ junior cpt is the pipeline timeline for an O.
    7. Literally the exact same ranks.

    Why would this be a question specific to America? Even 'egalitarian' communist states had officers.

    OP (3rd world homosexual btw) you should have asked a less spastic question, like: in the context of an all volunteer military (unlike the one in whatever shithole you are from), what are the advantages to the individual of electing to be an officer instead of enlisting, and is it worth the additional effort to go to a service academy?

    Its just EGO thing. People want to be higher cast and and admired by other people. Enlisted soldiers are view as Low IQ cattle while officers are the Elite, Smart and succesfull.

    Officers are rich kids looking for adventure, enlisted are poor kids looking for escape. Every army in history has worked that way.

    Why go into the military to spend four years being treated like shit and paid even worse?
