    For the objective wing if no general is authorized, which is not a valid position to place a Colonel in?

    • A.

      Commander

    • B.

      Vice commander

    • C.

    A Colonel is not typically placed in the position of Deputy commander in the objective wing if no general is authorized. This is because the Deputy commander position is usually filled by a higher-ranking officer, such as a Brigadier General or higher. The Deputy commander is responsible for assisting the Commander and overseeing the operations of the objective wing. Placing a Colonel in this position would not align with the hierarchical structure and chain of command within the objective wing.
