General Officer vs Flag Officer @ H. R. McMaster[edit]

For O-7 through O-10, if the officer is in the Army, they are referred to as a "General Officer", while if they are in the Navy, they are referred to as a "Flag Officer". If you check Section 526a of Title 10 (10 USC 526), you will also see federal law specifically refers to "General Officers" of the Army, Air Force, and USMC, and to "Flag Officers" of the Navy.

@AzureCitizen: Ah, I did not realize that, thank you for correcting it. Going back to the subject, I feel a separate section for OF-6 and above does not make a whole lot of sense. Articles on other military people tend to cover "military career" as a section without such distinctions. This will be particularly helpful since this individual will now get a section for their role as the National Security Adviser to the POTUS as things are bound to happen around the world. Do you think we can simply drop the sections by rank down to a "military career" section? -- A Certain White Cat chi? 16:20, 21 February 2017 (UTC)
Certainly... feel free to remove the subsection headers (company, field, general, etc.) Most biographies don't have subsections like that; I put those in to replace what was there previously, which was "Early Career", "Later Career", and "Controversy over promotion to general", or something like that. If want to just have a nice clean section titled "Career" or "Military Career" instead at the top, I'm okay with it. Regards, AzureCitizen (talk) 17:01, 21 February 2017 (UTC)

Sharon Carpenter image?[edit]

So. Cat. (Your certainness, whiteness, and coolness, whatever that might happen to be in Mandarin.) It's now been roughly 3 months since this edit where you removed the image from Sharon Carpenter because someone wrote you claiming to be working on behalf of Sharon Carpenter and promised a better free image. Is there honestly any more prospect of any such image now than there was roughly 3 months ago? Because if there honestly is, then I'll wait. But if there isn't, I do think we should put back the one we have. It will either prompt the person who contacted you to more haste - so much the better - or will at least be a perfectly reasonable image for the article. Agreed? --GRuban (talk) 21:44, 21 February 2017 (UTC)

@GRuban: Agreed. Let me check my OTRS interface and get back to you. -- A Certain White Cat chi? 14:06, 22 February 2017 (UTC)
@GRuban: I got nothing on OTRS so there isn't much for us to do in the OTRS end of things. I was hoping for a different outcome. Feel free to restore the file... -- A Certain White Cat chi? 12:37, 24 February 2017 (UTC)
