Please do Military Fun and Military Fun 2 first before doing this teaser. This teaser continues on from the first and second times the friends got together, and will give away the answer to Military Fun and Military Fun 2. So, please do those teasers first.

This time the same 10 friends are going to go through a training camp so that they can be ready for their next pretend battle. More friends are finding out about this military fun and want to join, Private Brianna and Private Ben have come into this group too. Today the friends will be running 3 laps around the park. At the end of the race, the friends will move up or down in ranks according on how they did. If you can't move up or down any ranks, you will stay in the same rank that you are currently in. The scoring will be as follows

1st Place- Move up 5 ranks
2nd Place- Move up 4 ranks
3rd Place- Move up 3 ranks
4th and 5th Places- Move up 1 rank each
6th and 7th Places- Stay the same rank
8th and 9th Places- Move down 1 rank each
10th and 11th Places- Move down 2 ranks each
12th Place- Move down 3 ranks

The ranks people have right now:

Lieutenant General Stephen
Colonel Anna
Major Felicia
Captain Clark
Sergeant Abby
Sergeant Brad
Corporal Jessica
Private Paul
Private Kelsey
Private Luke
Private Brianna
Private Ben

This is a list of the ranks again, just in case anyone forgot it.
1. Lieutenant General
2. Brigadier General
3. Colonel
4. Lieutenant Colonel
5. Major
6. Captain
7. First Lieutenant
8. Second Lieutenant
9. First Sergeant
10. Sergeant
11. Corporal
12. Private

The First Lap:

Stephen, Ben, Paul, and Jessica took off sprinting taking the top 4 spots. Felicia and Brianna aren't far behind though. Kelsey, Anna and Abby were bringing up the back as they had a late start.

In the top 4 runners, the bottom two ranked people were doing the best and the top ranked person was doing the worst. The Major was in 6th place as Brianna passed her for 5th. Luke was just about to pass Felicia, but tripped and fell back to 9th place as Clark and Brad passed him in that order. The back three girls were in their places according to their rank, the highest rank being 10th place and the lowest rank being 12th place.

The Second Lap:

Paul slipped on a water puddle and fell back to third place, leaving the person he was right by, way in front. Clark moved up 2 spots, pushing those two people back one place each. Then, Felicia and Anna switched places, and Luke and Brad switched places. The people in 11th and 12th ended up switching places just before the third lap as well.

The Third Lap:

The two people in 10th and 11th place switched spots, the two people in 5th and 6th places switched spots, and the two people in 7th and 8th places switched spots. Brad ended up getting passed by the two people directly behind him, and Jessica was passed by the person directly behind her. Everyone then finished in the order that they are currently in.

Can you figure out which place everyone is in, and what rank they will be after this race?
