At one of my instructor leadership classes for Navy Cadets there was a young veteran volunteer who claimed he was a "Buck Sargent". I didn't pay it much mind but wanted to check in with you Army guys and get a sitrep on the term. Honestly I have never heard it used before except maybe in the movie Patton. Thanks in advance.

It's a term for a brand new Sergeant. Not really a bad term, just means motivation than brains.
