Yes. this would be fine.
Both the Army and Marine rules on relationships are lenient enough to allow this, because you are not talking about a relationship between a commissioned officer and an enlisted member.
Where issues arise with non-commissioned officers and lower enlisted is when they are in the same chain of command or unit and there are opportunities for favoritism.
