    Default in or at military ?!

    Hello,

    I'd like to know the right one, this is a description of the meaning 'staff-sergeant':
    1)A corporal-rank in military.
    or
    2)A corporal-rank at military.

    And how could I make that decision by my own?

    Any misspellings here? Please tell me.

    I'd say:
    A corporal in the military
    The rank of corporal in the military
