Orin Mhando - In an infantry unit, a SGT is either a team or squad leader based on experience. I, as an E-5, was both at different times depending on the needs of the company. What else is an E-5 going to do in an infantry company? Nothing that I know of except an armorer or NBC NCO.

SGT (Join to see) - The team leader should be filled by either a CPL or a SPC soon to be CPL, with a SGT being SL, and a SSG as a PSG. IMHO.

Orin Mhando - It's all relative. I was a LCpl as a Team Leader and was a Cpl when I was a Vehicle Commander in a CAAT Plt which is normally a Sgt's billet. Sometimes the situation dictates that somebody steps up to the task

You aren't in any position unless you are officially assigned to it. Some request to be in a position and others are assigned. It depends on the scenario and situation but at the end of the day it isn't real until leadership assign it.

Your unit will employ you based on your qualifications. Can't speak for Army, but USMC will assign you within a Platoon based on training and ability. No formal requests. The needs of the Corps.
