Leaving the military and joining the Avengers would remove his rank, wouldn't it?
User avatar #32 to #24 - classybot (11/25/2013) [-]
He never left the military
As seen in the comics, he's part of SHIELD, which is in it's own way a branch of the military system.
And the Avengers is more of a self-proclaimed military group. In order to lose a rank, you must be a civilian, which Steve Rogers isn't.

no, what ever rank you have when leaving the military stays unless you reenlist into another branch of the military.

Dammit FunnyJunk, we've been over this before... Captain America IS a real captain. Look it up.
#30 - RollerRolledRoll ONLINE (11/25/2013) [-]
Yeah. He's not a Captain at all.
User avatar #7 - shunk (11/25/2013) [-]
He was obviously a Special case. And in Army Rank Captain isn't even that high in officer ranks.
User avatar #29 to #7 - puremadmentalged (11/25/2013) [-]
yes it is...
User avatar #37 to #29 - shunk (11/27/2013) [-]
Basically to be a captain in the Army you only need a bachelors degree and a couple years in service. Army captain is the same rank as a Navy Lieutenant.

Except Captain America was in the military and was actually promoted to the rank of captain.   
Jack Sparrow is a SELF-PROCLAIMED captain that doesn't even have a ship, there's nothing official about that 			****		.

Read jack Sparrow's history, he is the captain of the black pearl and was a well know captain when his ship was the Wicked Wench
#36 to #26 - angelusprimus (11/25/2013) [-]
Yeah but he was a freelance sailor. Not member of the military. Which means title "Captain" isn't a rank, its a job description.
No ship, no title.
User avatar #27 to #26 - darthblam ONLINE (11/25/2013) [-]
Except in all of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies he doesn't captain any of these.

Or at least we never see him do it. Either way.. I really doubt it's "official"
#35 to #27 - Rascal (11/25/2013) [-]
at the end of the first movie, during the whole second movie, and while in davy jones's locker, and at the end of the movie he is captain of the black pearl you jerk
User avatar #28 to #27 - themedianoche **User deleted account** (11/25/2013) [-]
When he had the Wicked Wench (it's in the novels) he even worked for the east India company shipping slaves and other **** , so it was official
User avatar #33 to #23 - otherothersparker (11/25/2013) [-]
his ship is the black pearl, it was just stolen via mutiny

again i must say.captain america was a captain.and the captain america thing was his superhero name(and thus not an official rank but just a nick name.same way lieutenant obvious is not actually lieutenant)

also if we started taking names seriously then green arrow would be robin hood wannabe

and black canary would be bitch screamalot
User avatar #16 to #14 - alalalalal (11/25/2013) [-]
He was promoted to the rank of captain... As in he was in the Army as a commissioned officer.
User avatar #17 to #16 - angelious ONLINE (11/25/2013) [-]
and i repeat again


captain america was a captain
User avatar #34 - thisotherdude (11/25/2013) [-]
Except Captain America is officially a captain.

And Jack is a pirate, which makes him basically just a criminal, meaning he has no official title.

Not officially a sparrow, everyone calls him Sparrow.

I know little **** about army/ armed forces rank, but don't you need to go to some sort of military college to get a commanding rank like a captain? And correct me if I am wrong, isn't a soldier who is a private, can get a field promotion to a commanding level?
#5 to #4 - Rascal (11/25/2013) [-]
Field promotions are no longer done, you may be a team leader as an e-4 or whatever and the "commander of the watch" is highest rank so that could be an e-3 (private first class in the army) OCS is the school where assholes are made

He fought in WW2, his dress uniform has Capt on it, back then you didnt even need HS
User avatar #8 to #6 - enemyoftrn (11/25/2013) [-]
HS, as in High School?
User avatar #11 to #8 - thepastryistrue (11/25/2013) [-]
Yes. As most people who went to a HS know, abbreviations are used to reduce the amount of time and equally the amount of words or letters to be used to express something. Only using the abbreviation instead of the much longer word "High School" can grant you an economisation of at least eight letters. These savings may allow much denser utterances, as they help you to convey more meaning in less time. Long explanations of abbreviations usually don't help you save time however, but tend to become necessary as long as abbreviations are used that not everyone is familiar with.
I think something like this might be the case here.
