dunno about the other branches, but in the Marine Corps, NCO's (corporals and sergeants) were allowed and encouraged to hang out together. fraternization was between NCOs and non-NCOs (lance corporals and below), between NCOs and staff NCOs (staff sergeant and above), between staff and non-NCOs, and between officers and (usually) non-staff-NCOs. (exceptions, always).

That doesn't, actually, make it a bad thing, though. I could go through the standard spiel about competition driving innovation, but the last thing I want is to start an ideology war in this thread.

Suffice to say that it doesn't much matter how we get up there, as long as we get up there.
