Message: Joey .: We wore no rank during the Course. However, on graduation day, General Creighton W. Abrams was surprised to see ; a Marine Captain, and three Marine Lieutenants standing with the Enlisted Platoon. As he pinned on our Ranger Tabs, he really stood tall as his pinned the Tab on five NCOs, "Buck" Sergeants, from his Division, the 101st Airborne. That was one exciting graduation for all involved.

Message: Mike: the picture with KK's uniform, was in the Sunday Tennesean "Portfolio" section (paper copy). It is not in the online edition that I could find. The exhibit starts May 28. I hope to go on Aug 11. I think you live in the Nashville area like me. I live in La Vergne. Jim: Interesting that they had officer and enlisted platoons in the early 1960s. When I went through in class 11-85 we wore no rank and were mixed in together. If I had not told my classmates that I was a lieutenant, they would have never known. I have no idea how they do it now.

Message: Joe B. ;

Kris, then a 2nd LT., was my Classmate, Class 1-1961. He was totally anonymous in the class, even at graduation. COOL!

We had two Officer Platoons and one Enlisted Platoon. After a week at Benning, four Marine officers asked to transfer to the Enlisted platoon. They were from Force Recon. They stood in ranks w/ us, the EM, on graduation day. Jim RLTW/L&P
