rank vs. age


I'm writing a Stargate fic in which I've thrown in four military OC's, three marines and one from the Air Force, and I'm wondering if it's plausible that someone of the following ranks is of the age I've given them?

Captain - 28 years old

Major - 34 years old

Master Sergeant - 40 years old

Corporal - 25 years old

Basically I'm just wondering if I've made them too young for the rank, or maybe too old? I don't know enough about the military to tell myself, everything I've learned comes from the Stargate shows. Changing the age of the characters if need be is not an issue, either, since they haven't really been established yet.
