Best Answer

The squad leader. In the US Army, they normally hold the rank of Staff Sergeant, and the size of a squad can vary depending on numbers of personnel available, what type of unit it is, etc. MTOE for a light infantry squad is nine personnel total, including the squad leader and two fire team leaders.

A squad leader is generally in charge of a squad.

Added: In a military or para-military-type organization (e.g.: Police Dept. or Fire Dept. - etc) the position is filled by a Sergeant.
