Once Again, Texas Leads the Way

Man pulls rank trick in Army - "A Texas man with no military experience tricked the Army into letting him enter a reserve unit as a noncommissioned officer earlier this year, a deception that placed an untrained soldier in a leadership position in a time of war.

Jesse Bernard Johnston III, 26, joined the Army Reserve in February as a sergeant and was assigned to the Corps Support Airplane Company at the Fort Worth Naval Air Station. But he wasn’t qualified to hold that rank, according to military records obtained by The Associated Press that show Johnston’s only military experience was attending a Marine officer candidate course for college students in 2004."
