1) Why are the officer ranks the insignia they are? 2) Traditionally in the military, it goes from gold to silver. Example: Major is a Gold Leaf, while Lt Col is a Silver Leaf. So why is it silver to gold instead?
It's just something that popped into my head, I am not against it at all, I am just curious as to why it is the way it is.
