All service members are important and have their own piece of the pie needed to make the military effective, but what would be the one position/rank that we would suffer from not having?

In my opinion, I would say the Squad Leader/Team Leader (E-5/E-6) is the most important leader and the company commander is the most important commander in the military. These leaders are close enough to the Soldiers to make a difference but high enough to set a wide spread example.

Absolutely it is that E-5/E-6 that sticks their neck out and mentors and develops the junior officers and junior enlisted! That is why it is so crucial to ensure that we protect them for doing what is right!

The E5 "Buck Sergeant." They are the NCO that has the most influence over lower Enlisted Soldiers. They set the example and educate.
