  • Junior officer, company officer or company grade officer refers to the lowest operational commissioned officer category of ranks in a military or paramilitary organization, ranking above non-commissioned officers and below senior officers. The terms company officer or company-grade officer are used more in the Army, Air Force, or Marine Corps as the ranks of captain, lieutenant grades and other subaltern ranks originated from the officers in command of a company or equivalent (cavalry squadron/troop and artillery battery). In many armed forces, a junior officer is specifically a commissioned officer holding rank equivalent to a naval lieutenant, an army captain or a flight lieutenant or below. In the United States Armed Forces, the term junior officer is used by the Navy and the Coast Guard for officers in the ranks of ensign (O-1), lieutenant, junior grade (O-2), lieutenant (O-3), and lieutenant commander (O-4). The U.S. commissioned officer corps is divided into ten pay grades (O-1 through O-10). Officers in pay grades O-1 through O-3 are considered company grade officers. In the Army, Marine Corps and Air Force, these pay grades correspond to the ranks of second lieutenant (O-1), first lieutenant (O-2), and captain (O-3), and in the Navy, these pay grades correspond to ensign (O-1), lieutenant (junior grade) (O-2), and lieutenant (O-3). Officers in pay grades O-4 through O-6 are considered field grade officers, with the exception of the Navy, as an O-4 is still considered a junior officer. In the Army, Marine Corps, and Air Force, these pay grades correspond to the ranks of major (O-4), lieutenant colonel (O-5), and colonel (O-6), and in the Navy, lieutenant commander, commander, and captain. The highest four pay grades are reserved for general officers in the Army, Marine Corps and Air Force and flag officers in the Navy. The ranks associated with each pay grade are as follows: in the Army, Marine Corps and Air Force, brigadier general (O-7), major general (O-8), lieutenant general (O-9) and general (O-10); in the Navy, rear admiral (lower half), rear admiral, vice admiral and admiral.

  • 尉官(いかん)は軍隊の階級区分の一。 士官の最下級であり、佐官の下、准士官の上に位置する。一般に、大尉、中尉、少尉の3階級からなる。大尉の上に上級大尉を加えたり少尉の下に准尉を加えるなど、4階級からなる場合もある(旧東陣営・共産圏に多い)。 下士官・兵を率いて最前線で直接戦闘を行う士官である。 陸軍では、一等陸尉・二等陸尉などと呼ばれることもあり、主に中隊や小隊の指揮官または幕僚等を務める。海軍では、主に軍艦の分隊長または分隊士等を務める。空軍では、主に航空機の操縦士等を務める。 英語ではcompany officer、フランス語ではofficiers subalternesという。 (ja)
