"Mustang", originally describing a breed of wild horses on Old Earth, was an unofficial term used by members of military organizations. It described a former enlisted crewmember that had been given an officer's commission in recognition of exemplary conduct.

The term was orignally used by members of the United States military on Earth. (HH7)

Manticoran service members who were awarded the Osterman Cross were usually offered a commission, but many turned it down. (HHA6.3: BATB)
