It could also be that Jake is used to thinking in terms of Earth military, in which an officer is different from a non-commissioned officer. We know his former rank was corporal, which is an NCO rank - so, maybe that's what he was thinking. He's more of an NCO - more a corporal or a sergeant - rather than a lieutenant or a major or a general.

...which possibly I should expand on in an essay of my own, your own commentary just made me think of it.
