Get Out and Go:
Nordique has evidently deleted his post that seemed to contrast your service with his in an uncomplimentary fashion.
Your gracious reply further highlights the character of the soldiers of the distinctive unit in which you honorably served.  Truly first class, as so artfully noted by catsp.  Thank you for your service.

Nordique, thanks for your service and sacrifice.  I met all the requirements and served honorably, attaining the rank of Sergeant, E-5.

Seems like somewhere along the way you attained the rank of Sergeant, "First Class." wink.gif

Sergeant is E5.  Sergeant First Class is an E7.

The father of a friend of mine was drafted and to be sent to a deadly place during Vietnam.

Then someone of some level of authority learned he played the organ exceptionally well.

He ended up in relative safety doing clerical work and playing the organ.  His unit got annihilated.

He called it luck when he told me the story.
