In the United States Army the rank of a rifle squad leader is staff sergeant (E-6) and in the United States Marine Corps the rank is corporal or sergeant (E-4, or E-5), though a corporal may also act as a squad leader in the absence of sufficient numbers of sergeants. Squad leaders of crew-served weapons squads range from corporal through staff sergeant, depending upon the branch of service and type of squad.
