You know you've made it when you get to hold the big stick. It allows you stand out the front. Naturally other men will be attracted to the sight and gather around. This then allows you to point and it makes the other chaps look. The automatic respose to such actions has been theorised to be inherently genetic to males.
Needless to say the size of the stick donates the importance of the fellow waiving it around. Some are clearly born to lead and it shows. While others must sit in awe. However the right to stand out the front and point is not pre-determined. Any fellow with the right training, the desire and some luck can find himself on the right end of the big stick to the awe and wonder of his fellow chaps.
Armored Division - Sherman tank and crew. Covering fire while others work. Thompson, Grease Gun, and Colt .45 all use the same cartridge. Lots of activity in an arm...
