From: David Zabecki <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: Re: REPLY: Rank of US Navy Commodore Date: March 6, 2010 1:52:00 AM EST To: H-NET Military History Discussion List <H-WAR@H-NET.MSU.EDU> Yes, but that lasted until 1968. After 10 years, those NCOs woth a rank-pat grade mismatch who mad not been promoted in the last ten years were forced to take the rocker off. I can well remember the grumblings when the few SFC E-6s who were left had to revert to wearing SSG stripes. D.T.
