Army NCO History (Part 1) American Revolution

By Staff Sgt. Jarod Perkioniemi (20th Public Affairs Detachment)

The history of the U.S. Army noncommissioned officer dates back to 1775 with the birth of the Continental Army. Like the Army itself, the NCO Corps did not copy the fundamental roles of just the British Army; instead it blended traditions of the British, French and Prussian armies to create its own unique institution.

As the American political system progressed over the years, the NCO Corps continually distinguished itself from its European counterparts as well. In 1778, at Valley Forge, Inspector General Friedrich von Steuben, a Prussian-German Army Officer, standardized NCO duties and responsibilities for the Continental Army NCO Corps.

Before this, there was very little standardization in what the true role of the NCO was in the new Continental Army. In his publication, Regulations for the Order and Discipline of the Troops of the United States, commonly called the Blue Book, Von Steuben set forth the duties and responsibilities of the NCO ranks at that time.

There were five NCO ranks: corporal, sergeant, first sergeant, quartermaster sergeant and sergeant major. When Von Steuben wrote his publication, which was printed in 1779, it became the primary regulation for the Army for the next 30 years.

Von Steuben was the first to refer to the NCO Corps as the backbone of the Army and his regulation established the centerpiece for NCO duties and responsibilities from 1778 to the present.

The development of the NCO Corps helped sustain the Continental Army through severe hardship towards finally achieving independence in 1783.

It was customary during battles that NCOs were to fire rapidly and true, while also close gaps created by casualties.

NCOs were also responsible for keeping men silent during night missions, while leading them through the terrain. This was a key factor during the Battle of Stony Point, where the bayonet training received from Von Steuben played a critical role in the charge to capture the fort from the British.

NCOs wore an epaulet, a French word meaning little shoulder, to signify their rank. Sergeants wore red epaulets while corporals wore green. It was in 1779 that sergeants began to wear two epaulets while corporals retained their single epaulet.

It was not uncommon that a Soldier would often spend their entire career within the same regiment. If a Soldier were to change regiments, he would not take his rank with him; the stripes remained with the regiment.

At that time, all promotions that a Soldier received came directly from the regimental commander. No NCO could transfer in grade from one regiment to the other without the permission of the General in Chief of the Army, who was the Commanding General of the U.S. Army, which was rarely done.

During the American Revolutionary War, historians indicate that only three Soldiers were awarded the Badge of Military Merit for their acts of heroism. All of them were NCOs and received the award from Gen. George Washington himself.

The Badge of Military Merit was a purple heart with a floral border and the word merit inscribed across the center. The badge is the predecessor to both the Medal of Honor, which was first awarded during the Civil War, and the Purple Heart, which was first awarded in 1927. After the American Revolutionary War, the award faded from use, though it was never abolished. The award of the badge was not recommended again until after World War I.

In the years following the American Revolution, many changes and additions were made to the NCO ranks leading up to the War of 1812 and the Mexican-American War in 1846.

an Army Linguist Foreign language codes payment schedules

This is NOT an official Army-sanctioned webpage. This is just an NCO trying to help other Soldiers out. Whatever my opinions are on here are not to be considered the opinions of the Army, or even considered fact. All information presented should be double-checked with your CLPM and Retention NCO/Recruiter, or double-checked in the Army Regulation or message provided. Despite my best efforts and collaboration with other NCOs, I am sometimes wrong and you shouldnt base your enlistment/re-enlistment solely on what I have to say, but rather use this information as a base for your research.Foreign language codes, payment schedulesNot many people realized that the Army no longer calls it Foreign Language Proficiency Pay (FLPP) and has changed it somewhat recently to Foreign Language Proficiency Bonus (FLPB). If you hear someone saying Flip Bee or Flip thats what theyre referring to.

If you have questions, please feel free to visit theFrequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page.

Here is the payment schedule based on your language. Remember that getting paid requires you to either be in a language-dependent MOS (such as 35P), or a language-capable MOS (such as 35M) in a language coded billet (or any billet if you are DLI trained). Thanks to one of our readers and the division CLPM I was able to get clarification that you MAY in fact get paid FLPB if you have a very important language and it is NOT considered a dominant language (such as Spanish is dominant). Here is the reference: According to MILPER Message 08-114: D. IAW CHAPTER 6, FLPB ENTITLEMENT IS NOT LIMITED TO LANGUAGE DEPENDENT SOLDIERS OR SOLDIERS ASSIGNED TO A LANGUAGE CODED BILLET. ALL SOLDIERS ARE AUTHORIZED ENTITLEMENT TO FLPB IF THEY MEET THE ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS OUTLINED IN AR 11-6 AND ARE PROFICIENT IN ONE OF THE LANGUAGES LISTED IN PAYMENT LIST A, B, OR C, AS LONG AS THE LANGUAGE IS NOT DESIGNATED AS A DOMINANT LANGUAGE.

References for the above information can be found on the regulatory guidance page (see the links on the top of the page). Click on the link and reference AR 11-6 and MILPER Message 08-114.

SFC J, I thought that certain critical languages were paid a FLPB regardless of language billet. The ones Im thinking of specifically are Pashto, Dari, and certain Arabic Dialects.

Im going to have to get back with you on that, probably Monday. I cant seem to find the guidance that indicates what you are saying. Sorry, I wish I knew everything, but alas I have to look stuff up too 🙂

According to DoD instruction 7280.3 it seems to indicate what you are saying. That can be found here:

Im still trying to figure out exactly what it is referencing because it is very vague. It says that people can get paid if the secretary deems a language critical regardless of job, but it doesnt elaborate.

The MILPER index also seems to be down because I am not getting any search results.

Ill contact my BDE CLPM Monday for guidance. Sorry.

Dont worry, Ive read similar documents before. One of the indications was that if I returned to a CMF 12 unit for some reason, I should receive a minimal FLPB for my 1/1+ in Pashto, because I could deploy with that unit and be utilized as a part-time linguist for them. Thanks to your earlier posting, I will be able to maintain most of what I have in preparation for returning to class, so I will likely finish off the PV basic course at near a 3/3/2.

Ok, I updated the post with a link to the regulation. Thank you very much for pointing out this error to me so that I could find the information out for people.

Not only is it beneficial for future Soldiers and Linguists, but it helps me out as well. I learned something today because of your question, and I thank you for that!!! No leader, no matter what rank, is above learning something on a daily basis. 🙂

You mention one of my earlier posts, are you referring to my study reference page?

Also I havent heard of being paid for 1/1+. Are you a native speaker or did you just get some quickstart information before you deployed?

Either way, thanks for reading my blog. And future linguists thank you as well.

I was referencing the linguist maintainence post. Im not 100% certain on the 1/1+, just that Ive heard that combat related jobs get paid a small FLPB for having that minimum proficiency in a critical language. Something about Commanders discretion to that. Im at DLI right now, but Im on a med hold. That 1/1+ was my mock DLPT before I finally got put on the med hold. And as you said, no matter how high the leader, there is always something new to learn, which is why the army has Sr. NCOs and Warrant Officers.

Well, thanks again for contributing. Hopefully some of the resources can help you. The sad part is, there are so many resources that you can use, but they arent always easy to locate. I only recently found out about the Defense Connect Online to be honest. I plan on enrolling in every Farsi course for the rest of my career that I can. The only downfall is that I have to leave work early on Mondays and Tuesdays to get to it…and I have 43 Soldiers in my platoon, so its hard to pull away from work.

Im waiting on my interim TS. How long did yours take?

I am trying to find out if i can get paid for more than one dialect of Arabic. I could not find anything regarding this in AR 11-6. My finance office said that i can only get paid for one dialect but there is no such thing in the regulation.

Mine was 4 months total from start to finish. I never really had an interim. I spent about a month preparing my clearance though and everything was perfect, making the investigation easier.

I didnt see German on the list? Any ideas where I could find that rate?

If its a dominant language you wont likely be paid.

What do the letters mean for example crypto linguist (jn) the letters in paranthesis

This comment has been removed by the author.

They are the language codes….for example, PF is Persian-Farsi, AD is Modern Standard Arabic, QB is Spanish (I have no idea how QB equates to Spanish), etc.

Would I get anything for 2 reading and 1+ listening?

No, you must score a minimum of 2/2. Also, when you get your scores, you are paid at the lowest rate. For example, a 2/2+ gets paid at a 2/2 level, and a 2/3 would still get paid at the 2/2 level, etc.

Havent gotten a penny yet 8 months after i did my test and got 3/3. Am now struggling to fill up a DA 4187 to take to finance. Anyone know how to fill one?

Go to your NCO and he should take you to the orderly room NCO

For the different use of the term brevet in military aviation, seeaircrew brevet.For other uses, seeBrevet.

In many of the worlds military establishments, abrevet(/brəvɛt/or/brɛvɪt/)[1]was a warrant authorizing acommissioned officerto hold a higherranktemporarily, but usually without receiving the pay of that higher rank except when actually serving in that role. An officer so promoted may be referred to as beingbrevetted. For example, He was brevettedmajor general. The promotion would be noted in the officers title, for example, Bvt. Maj. Gen.Joshua L. Chamberlainor Bvt. Maj Gen.John Aaron Rawlins. This is not to be confused with aBrevetin Francophone Europe military circles, where it is an award.

TheArticles of Waradopted by theUnited States Armyin 1776 and slightly revised in 1806 established the use and significance of brevet ranks or awards in the U.S. Army. When first used, a brevet commission in the U.S. Army entitled the officer to be identified by a higher rank but the award had limited effect on the right to higher command or pay. A brevet rank had no effect within the officers current unit, but when assigned duty at the brevet rank by the U.S. President such an officer would command with the brevet rank and be paid at the higher rank. This higher command and pay would last only for the duration of that assignment. The brevet promotion would not affect the officers seniority and actual permanent rank in the army.[2]Beginning on April 16, 1818, brevet commissions also required confirmation by the United States Senate, just as all other varieties of officer commissions did.[3]

Brevets were first used in the U.S. Army during theAmerican Revolutionary War. Often, the nations Continental Congress could not find suitable positions for foreign officersmostly from Francewho sought commissions. The first U.S. brevet was given toJacques Antoine de Franchessinon July 20, 1776, allowing him to hold the rank oflieutenant colonelwithin theContinental Army. Franchessin and another 35 men of foreign birth would hold brevet commissions in the army by the end of the war. By 1784, an additional 50 officers would receive brevets for meritorious services during the conflict.[2]

In the 19th century U.S. Army, brevet promotions were quite common because the army had many frontier forts to garrison and other missions to perform but could not always appoint appropriately ranked officers to command these forts or missions. The U.S. Congress permitted only a limited number of officers of each rank. Thus, an officer of lower rank might receive a brevet commission to a rank more appropriate for his assignment. Also, newly commissioned officers often received brevet rank until authorized positions became available. For example, an officer might graduate fromWest Pointand be appointed a brevetsecond lieutenantuntil a permanent posting opened up. In early 1861, some recent graduates ofWest Pointtemporarily were named brevet second lieutenants because not enoughRegular Armyofficer vacancies were available to give them commissions as regular second lieutenants.[4]In addition to officers being appointed to a brevet rank to temporarily serve in positions designated for higher-ranked officers (i.e., in lieu of promotion to permanent rank), officers might be awarded brevet rank as recognition for gallantry or meritorious service.

During theAmerican Civil War, almost all senior officers received some form of brevet award, mainly during the final months of the war. These awards were made for gallantry or meritorious service, rather than for command. In addition to the authorization in a previous law for awards of brevet ranks toRegular Armyofficers, an act of Congress of March 3, 1863 authorized the award of brevet rank to officers of theUnited States Volunteers.[5]Thus, brevet awards became increasingly common later in the war. Some officers even received more than one award. Because of the existence of both Regular Army and United States Volunteers ranks and the possibility that an officer could hold actual and brevet ranks in both services, some general and other officers could hold as many as four different ranks simultaneously. For example, by the end of the war,Ranald S. Mackenziewas a brevetmajor generalof volunteers, an actual, full rankbrigadier generalof volunteers, a brevetbrigadier generalin the United StatesRegular Army, and an actual Regular Armycaptain.[6]

Brevet rank in theUnion Army, whether in theRegular Armyor theUnited States Volunteers, during and at the conclusion of the American Civil War, may be regarded as an honorary title which conferred none of the authority, precedence, nor pay of real or full rank.[7]The vast majority of the Union Army brevet ranks were awarded posthumously or on or as of March 13, 1865 as the war was coming to a close.[7]U.S. Army regulations concerning brevet rank provided that brevet rank could be claimed in courts-martial and on detachments, when composed of different corps and when the officer served with provisional formations made up of different regiments or companies, or on other occasions.[7]These regulations were vague enough to support the positions of some brevet generals who caused controversies by claiming supposed priorities or privileges of brevet ranks that had been awarded to them at earlier dates during the war.[7]

Some full rank brigadier generals in the United States Volunteers (USV) in the American Civil War were awarded brevet brigadier general rank in the USV before they received a promotion to full rank brigadier general of United States Volunteers. Some full rank brigadier generals in the USV were awarded the rank of brevet major general in the USV, but were not promoted to full rank major generals in the USV. Some United States Regular Army officers who served with the USV in ranks below general officer were awarded brevet general officer rank in the USV, but were not promoted to full rank general officers in the USV. On the other hand, at least a few USV general officers also were awarded brevet general officer rank in the Regular Army in addition to their full rank appointments or brevet major general awards in the United States Volunteers. Many of the Regular Army officers of lower rank who became full rank USV generals, however, received neither actual promotions to a general officer rank nor brevet general officer awards in the Regular Army in addition to their USV ranks or awards. Some of them who stayed in the United States Regular Army after the war did achieve general officer rank in later years.

In addition to the brevet awards to current (or future) full-rank United States Volunteers (USV) generals during the American Civil War, 1,367 other USV officers of lower ranks were awarded the rank of brevet brigadier general, brevet major general, or both, in the United States Volunteers but not promoted to full-rank USV generals.[8]At least one enlisted man,PrivateFrederick W. Stowe, was brevetted as a second lieutenant in the Union Army during the Civil War.[9]

TheConfederate States of Americahad legislation and regulations for the use of brevets in their armed forces, provided by Article 61 of the nations Articles of War, and by their 1861Army Regulations, which were based on the U.S. Armys 1857 version of their regulations. Although Article 61 was revised in 1862, it ultimately had no practical effect since theConfederate States Armydid not use any brevet commissions or awards during its existence.[10]

The United States Marine Corps also issued brevets. After officers became eligible for theMedal of Honor, a rareMarine Corps Brevet Medalwas issued to living officers who had been brevetted between 1861 and 1915.[11]

The practice of brevetting disappeared from the (regular) U.S. military at the end of the 19th century; honors were bestowed instead with a series of medals. However, the similar practice offrockingcontinues in four of the five branches of the U.S. armed forces. TheU.S. Air Forcedoes not allow the regular practice of frocking before a promotion date.

Although brevetting as such was no longer in effect in the 20th century U.S. military, it was common during the First and Second World Wars, and for at least four decades after WWII,citation neededfor officers in theRegular Army(the peacetime, permanent standing army composed of career soldiers) to be given temporary promotion to higher ranks in the wartimeNational ArmyorArmy of the United Statescomposed primarily of volunteers and draftees. For instance,Dwight D. Eisenhowerhad the permanent rank of Captain but the effective rank of Lieutenant Colonel during the First World War. At wars end, the National Army was disbanded and he reverted to his permanent rank of Captain. Such quasi-brevet promotions may become permanent. During the Second World War, Eisenhower had the permanent rank of Brigadier General but served asGeneral of the Army. At wars end, this promotion was confirmed in the Regular Army.

Today, brevetting still occurs on rare occasions when officers are selected for promotion to a higher rank, but have yet to reach the effective date of promotion. For brevetting to occur today, an unusual set of circumstances must be present to justify wearing the higher rank before the promotion becomes effective. For example, in 2005, two U.S. Air Force lieutenant colonels selected for promotion to Colonel were brevetted (frocked) Colonel about six months ahead of their effective dates of promotion because of the high-profile nature of the duties that they were performing.

The U.S. National Guard, which depends on the governor of a state to concede its commissions, may still confer brevets. Many states maintain a clause permitting the governor to confer any rank in its defense forces, including the militia and National Guards. Some states provide that the sitting governor may confer any rank, but this appointment is considered valid only for the duration of the governors own term in office.

Some states also confer brevets as part of their regular honors system. Georgia confers honorary ranks into its state police force. Kentucky is famous forits colonels, and so too is Tennessee, both of which make the appointment as an honorary member of the governors staff. Alabama, Texas andNebraskaalso confer an admiralty within a symbolic navy. Similar honors have been issued for Georgias militia navy, which has only existed on paper since 1908. In all cases these honorary titles may be considered effective brevets, equal to that of the National Guard, by being conferred by a sitting governor.

In theUnited Kingdomthe brevet commission was only by courtesy. Officially, both titles were used, as: Major and Brevet Lieutenant ColonelCornwallis. Originally the term designated a promotion given on such occasions as a coronation, or the termination of a great war, and had its origin during the reign ofJames II(168588); but it was abused so frequently and used to such an extent by the general award of brevet commissions, that in 1854, during and after theCrimean War, its bestowal was limited strictly to cases of very distinguished service in thefieldand on the principle of seniority. In the United Kingdom, brevet commissions were confined to grades from captain to lieutenant-colonel.

The Brevet conferred rank in the army, but importantly, not in theregiment. Advancement in the regiment could take place generally only bypurchaseor by seniority, and when there was a suitable vacancy (caused by the death, retirement or promotion of a more senior officer). When on duty with his regiment, only regimental rank counted; if the regiment was with a larger formation then brevet rank could be used to determine command of temporary units formed for special purposes. In particularBrigadierwas not then a permanent rank so command ofbrigadeswas determined by seniority, including date of promotion to any brevet rank. Thus it was possible for a regimentalMajorto hold a brevetLieutenant-colonelcywith seniority over the commission of his own commanding officer as Lieutenant-Colonel and be given command of a brigade (potentially including his own regiment). Similarly, if the officer was serving in a staff position or as anAide-de-campthen they could use their brevet rank. Appointment to a brevet also counted towards the requirement to have served for a sufficient time in a lower rank to be eligible for promotion (by purchase) to a more senior one.[12]

In French usage it applies to commissions in general. The French military used provisional commissions much similar to current US brevet ranks, that is, promotions given to officers performing high-profile duties before the effective date of promotion. As an example,Charles de Gaullewas promoted provisional brigadier general (gnral de brigade titre provisoire) in 1940 when he was commander of an armoured division.

In French, anofficier brevetis known between 1870 to 1940 as an officier who studied in Lcole suprieure de guerre, where lieutenants and capitaines could reinforce their knowledge.[13]

In the Prussian and German army and navy, it was possible to bestow aCharakterrank on officers that was in many respects similar to a brevet rank. For example, anOberstcould receive theCharakter als Generalmajor. Very often, German officers would be promoted to the next higherCharakterrank on the day of their retirement.

It was not uncommon during the 19th century to distinguish betweenempleo(employed) rank andgraduacin(grade) being the effective command position. In the 1884 rank regulations (which with minor modifications were in force during theSpanishAmerican War) stars marked the rank whilst the actual post was reflected in gold lace on the cuffs.

As in practice both situations coincided the system was dropped in 1908 leaving only the starred system of denoting rank. Nevertheless during the Spanish Civil War the system was revived in the Nationalist side due to the lack of trained officers because of the enlargement of the army. The breveted officers (known ashabilitadosorestampillados) wore their actual rank on the cuffs but their brevetted one in a rectangular black patch on the left breast of their coats or shirts.
