As a psychotherapist and combat vet who attained Sgt. E-5, I had little difficulty working with higher ranking ex-NCOs and ex-officers. This was due to my year of heavy combat in 1968 in the 1st Cavalry division. I was given more respect for that than for my psychology training. The exception to this was Marine vets who were officers and fighter pilots. I was Army and not an officer and only had 2 yrs. active duty and 4 yrs reserve. Can't please them all. But this rank thing and and the "transference" in the therapeutic relationship are extremely important issues that if not addressed are usually the elephant in the room that impedes progress in therapy. Should be significant training in the military and the VA for both these issues.
