I think a lot of bird colonels (Captains in the Navy) would be pissed that they are considered "accountants". . . .

And what about the backbone of the military - the E7, E8, E9?

Not enough space here to cover it, but Steve pointed out the thing about Colonel's....

Spend over 42 years on active and reserve duty like I did in 2 different branches and 70 years around the military like me and you'll know...How so

The fact the list seemed to be very admin related was a clue. Now, a Colonel could have been a divisional adjutant, but that is much more than an accountant.

Probably of more use to veterans is the mapping of ranks (and rates) to GS levels. Civilian to Military Rank - FederalPay.org
Yep, depending on the assignment (and as a contractor) I was as nominal GS-11 to GS-14, with Ft Irwin Safety I was slotted as a GS-13
