  Master Sergeant - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A master sergeant is the military rank for a senior non-commissioned officer in some armed forces.
Master Sergeants are addressed as "Master Sergeant", or "Master", and not "Sergeant".
At the rank of Master Sergeant, the airman enters the senior noncommissioned tier and his or her duties begin to focus on leadership and management rather than technical performance.

 Master Gunnery Sergeant - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Master Gunnery Sergeant (MGySgt) is the ninth and highest enlisted rank (along with the grade-equivalent ranks of Sergeant Major and Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps) in the U.S. Marine Corps.
Master Gunnery Sergeants are sometimes referred to by the nickname "Master Guns" or "Master Gunny." These nicknames are unacceptable in formal or ceremonial situations, and, at the rank holder's discretion, may also be unacceptable for use by lower-ranking Marines.
The rank was included, along with the rank of Master Sergeant, in a new program for the paygrades of E-8 and E-9 which allowed senior SNCO billets to now be filled by occupational specialists.

 The Ultimate Sergeant Major - American History Information Guide and Reference
An alternate usage of Command Sergeant Major is the senior NCO of a headquarters unit at battalion level or above; the soldier filling this position should carry the rank of Sergeant Major, but personnel shortages may, from time to time, force this sergeant major position to be held by a senior Master Sergeant.
In particular, the Regimental Sergeant Major (RSM) (WO1) is the senior NCO of a battalion (in the infantry) or of a regiment (in other branches), equivalent to a Command Sergeant Major in the United States.
In the late 19th century, the cavalry RSM and infantry Sergeant Major were among a number of senior non-commissioned positions that were confirmed with warrants, making them warrant officers.
