Do you need the rank?

A military chap told me today of the time when he was helping out with a certain regiment somewhere on a certain task (he told me to keep it vague) and saw a sign on a door:
If you need the rank, you're not worth it.
If you're worth the rank you don't need it.
Food for thought there.
