Lieutenant (navy)
Lieutenant[nb 1] (abbreviated Lt, LT, LT(N), Lt(N), Lieut and LEUT, depending on nation) is a commissioned officer rank in many nations' navies. It is typically the most senior of junior officer ranks. The rank's insignia usually consists of two medium gold braid stripes and often the uppermost stripe features an executive curl. The now immediately senior rank of lieutenant commander was formerly a senior naval lieutenant rank. Many navies also use a subordinate rank of sub-lieutenant. The appointment of "first lieutenant" in many navies is held by a senior lieutenant. A navy lieutenant ranks higher than an army lieutenant; the navy rank of lieutenant is a NATO OF-2 (US grade O-3) and ranks with an army captain.Contents1 History 2 Rank insignia 3 "First lieutenant" in naval usage 4 See also 5 Notes 6 ReferencesHistory[edit] From at least 1580,[1] the lieutenant on a ship had been the officer immediately subordinate to the captain

Wounded In Action
Wounded in action (WIA) describes combatants who have been wounded while fighting in a combat zone during wartime, but have not been killed. Typically it implies that they are temporarily or permanently incapable of bearing arms or continuing to fight.[1] For the U.S. military, becoming WIA in combat generally results in subsequent conferral of the Purple Heart, because the purpose of the medal itself (one of the highest awards, military or civilian, officially given by the American government) is to recognize those killed, incapacitated, or wounded in battle.Contents1 NATO's definitions1.1 Wounded in action 1.2 Died of wounds received in action2 References 3 See alsoNATO's definitions[edit] Wounded in action[edit] A battle casualty other than killed in action who has incurred an injury due to an external agent or cause
