There is a popular pun on the word “private.” A private is a soldier of the lowest military rank

Wikipedia: Private (rank)
A private is a soldier of the lowest military rank (equivalent to NATO Rank Grades OR-1 to OR-3 depending on the force served in).

In modern military writing, “private” is abridged to “Pte” in the United Kingdom and other Commonwealth of Nations countries and to “Pvt” in the United States.

I asked the Colonel what the lowest rank in the army was.
He said, “It’s Private.”
I said, “Come on, you can tell me.”

I’ve been asking around what the lowest rank in the Army is, but no one would tell me.

The army never wanted to disclose it lowest rank, guess they wanted it to be private
