There are numerous General ranks of various grades, in usage today:
Usage in Organized Militaries
General is a senior officer rank, who holds various similar commanding positions. 'General' is shortened to 'GEN' or 'Gen' in most organized militaries. Generally, he is the Army Commander in a country (commanding all 4 military divisions) and, as such, he is also Minister of Defense in the government and Chief of staff in the national Joint Chief of Staff. Besides, he is responsible for a media presence in a country and recruitment and in charge of national military management in supplying of weapons and other items to soldiers. (Staff officer)
In the British Army, a General is a commanding officer (or General Officer Commanding) of a branch of the army. Officers of the rank of General also make up the General Staff, the senior commanding body of the British Army.
In the United States Armed Forces, the rank of General is awarded to Commanders of a Branch of the military, such as the United States Army or United States Training Corps. The Vice-Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff also holds this rank.
An exception to this rule, the United States Marine Corps employs the rank of Commandant instead, with the same usage and rank insignia of a full General.
