APA 6th Edition

APA Style doesn't use any titles, including military rankings, when referring to authors. Accordingly, only the author's last name is necessary.

APA 7th Edition

Do not include the rank of military authors in in-text citations or references; the APA Style rules "do not include titles, positions, ranks, or academic achievements with names in reference list entries (e.g., Reverend, President, General, PhD, LCSW)" (American Psychological Association, 2020, p. 287).
