WHAT DOES CORPORAL MEAN IN ENGLISH?

corporal

Corporal

Corporal is a military rank in use in some form by most militaries and by some police forces or other uniformed organizations. Within NATO, each member nation's corresponding military rank of corporal is combined under the NATO-standard rank scale code OR-4. The rank of corporal nominally corresponds to commanding a section or squad of soldiers. However, in the United States Army, the rank of corporal is rarely used, as the Table of Organization & Equipment rank of a fire team leader is sergeant and that of squad leader is staff sergeant. In the United States Marine Corps, corporal is the Table of Organization rank for a rifle fire team leader, machine gun team leader, light mortar squad leader, and assault weapon squad leader, as well as gunner on most larger crew served weapons, armored vehicles, and the two assistant gunners on a howitzer. In most countries which derive their military structure from the British military system, it is a more senior rank than that of private.
