A Sergeant a non-commissioned officer ranking above Privates and Corporals in most non-naval military or paramilitary organizations, and below Warrant Officers and Commissioned Officers.

There are usually several ranks of Sergeant, each corresponding to greater experience and responsibility for the daily lives of the soldiers of larger units. Although even the highest sergeant is officially lower in rank than the lowest Lieutenant, an experienced Sergeant will have considerable personal power and know how to exercise it.

Nathaniel Teager was a Green Beret sergeant with the Bloody Sabers during the Vietnam War.
