Sorry, Heather, it would be Lieutenant Colonel, of course.

However, officer ranks may vary from one country to another.

Many thanks to Maria Teresa and Juan Jacob. E.M. must be "Estado Mayor." I used "Staff."

neutral  Juan Jacob: Sí, Teniente Coronel, suena lógico, aunque la pregunta va por E.M. Estado Mayor, según yo. Saludos. Pues venga, propon algo para Estado Mayor... yo, no sé, y me pasas la mitad de los puntos, jeje. Re-saludos.

  -> Gracias, Juan. Es que como está completo allá arriba en el campo de pregunta, supuse que era todo. Tienes razón con lo de E.M., es casi seguro que se refiere a Estado Mayor. Saludos.
