I don't see a military related thread, so I'll start one up here.

Current 4 Star generals and admirals are still overwhelmingly Boomer:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ac...r_officers


Nakasone b. 1963 (USA: US Cyber Command)
McDrew b. 1960 (USAF)
Abrams b. 1960 (USA)
Perna b. 1960 (USA)
Richardson b. 1960 (USN: CNO)
Grady? Commissioned ROTC 1984 (USN)
Raymond? Comm. (ROTC?) 1984 (USAF)
Everhart II b. 1961 (USAF)
O'Shaughnessy b. 1964 (USAF)
Wolters b. 1961 (USAF)
Michel b. 1963 (USCG)
Giror b. 1960 (PHS)

...but there are 4 Boomers on the cusp on Xer (1960), 2 Xers on the cusp of Boomer (1961), and (probably) 5 Xers (1962 or later) out of 41 (including the US Coast Guard and Public Health Service). On 1960 cohort is Chief of Naval Operations (the oversimplify, the head of the Navy), and an Xer commands Cyber Command.
