Bio

From Find A Grave member LKat's profile page I have copied the following statement that I totally agree with. I do make an exception for a member of the military that has died during combat. That is the only case where I add the rank of a person buried in a national cemetery.

ADDING THE RANK TO A MEMORIAL
Use of one's former rank by non-retired military personnel is not a prescribed usage by the Department of Defense (DoD). Use of rank is reserved for career 20-year retirees -- with the intention that their use of the rank is for personal social use -- and is not for use subsequent civilian work-related situations.
In a bio or in a resume the service to our nation would be included as
part of one's experience -- it's just using the rank as part of one's
name the DoD specifically prohibits.
