Sergeant Major Henry H. Black 
9 February 1929 — 24 August 2012

The only unique rank held within today's Marine Corps.  A normal SgtMaj's rank bears a single large star in the center.

Generations of greatness - (l to r) current SgtMaj of the Marine Corps SgtMaj Micheal P. Barrett, SgtMaj Carlton W. Kent (retired), SgtMaj John L. Estrada (retired) and SgtMaj Alford L. McMichael (retired), lead the funeral procession for SgtMaj Henry H. Black, the 7th Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps (1975-1977), at Quantico National Cemetery, Triangle, Va. on 29 August 2012.

I've served under the leadership of all three retired Sergeant's Major.
