Good teaser but this ticks me off because I had a teaser rejected because "letters going up or down are now longer accepted"

Nice rebus. I didn't get the correct answer, but still find it very clever. Thanks for posting.

I can buy the word moving,but your rank category is completly out of wack.You went from Admiral down to Sargeant

I agree with Doehead. If the rankings were in order, it would have been perfect!

Very nice!
I got "moving up" but I never did think of "ranks"
Fun!

doehead - I think the "MOVING" going up takes care of that. The ranks are just ranks, and the "MOVING" goes upward through them.
At first, I was a little confused because there wasn't any order to the ranks, too.

That's a cool teaser! I was waaaaay off on the answer though :I

Technically it's not really moving up, since each rank isn't successively higher...
Jimbo*au*

It's "moving" up - that's the first past and the second part refers to a list of officers i.e. 'the ranks'. It doesn't necessarily have to describe "the whole thing"! I liked it!

One of the best for sure. The "moving up" is perfectly given; no need for ordered ranks. Great one to remember in Fav's Box.

While technically it is true that the teaser still works even though the ranks are out of order, it would just make more sense for them to be listed properly. I would say starting with the highest rank on the top so that the ranks also "move up".
It works either way, but I personally like things to be neat and orderly.
elentirAus*

The ranks can't be put in order as they aren't all in the same branch. General and Admiral are equal ranks in different branches. Admiral and Ensign are Naval/Coast Guard ranks while the rest are Army/Air Force/Marines.

Excellent!!

That was a clever teaser. I saw MOVING up and different ranks. I agree with those who said it didn't matter that the ranks weren't listed in any order. It was easy for me and I enjoyed it. Let's not make it complicated! Thanks and hello old friends!

AWOR and I stick with my original statement. And for all that don't know; I have a great wife and two ladyfriends(G&S).
teri12265us*

I've seen this before, although I hadn't already written on it, but it occurs to me that if the ranks were in any form of proper order, the word 'moving' would not be spelled out (ie: admiral is the only one with an 'm') and therefore would be near impossible to solve.

The answer should be something like "breaking ranks" instead of moving up the ranks since they are out of order. Also, the ranks used are from more than one branch of service.
Chobuck*

It makes perfect sense to me. MOVING is going up, and it is in the middle of each word. Every word is a rank they don't have to be in order, the word MOVING is still going through them.

Still easy, but fun. Hi to K & G.
