    No, there are ordinarily only five General slots in the Army, TJAG, Lt Gen, DJAG, Maj. Gen., and then three Brig. Gen slots.

    There will always be one BG (or possibly even a Col.) who leaps up to 3 stars.

    the army jag school used to run just fine with a colonel in charge – grade inflation can’t be stopped – no wonder this country is going broke – and why do we need 3 separate jag schools

    Interesting to know that the Army JAG only has 5 flag slots, that is about same as the Air Force. I would have thought the Army would have more because it has more personnel.

  4. Anon says:

    We actually have 8 GO slots in the Army. 3 reserve one stars in addition to the 3 active duty one stars.

    Who’s gonna be the DJAG?

  6. Anon says:

    BG Tate, the current USALSA CDR, was previously announced as the incoming DJAG. No explanation as to why they didn’t all come out together.

    Wow, the one female BG gets squeezed out, and none of the new BG’s are female. This is not good for recruiting…
