In the spring of 70 a new rank was created for a Pfc that thought
he'd been a private too long (4 months) All his friends were being promoted and he was disappointed he was being left behind. With the help of the supply sargent a set of command sargent major pins were obtained and subsequently altered to look like Pfc pins with the star and wreath in the center. Although not an increase in pay,he found a new respect among the EM. When finally asked by an officer to explain the insignia I replied "Command Pfc Sir!" Man was he pissed. They came off in the blink of an eye. I'm pretty sure his exact words were "Get those f----n' things off NOW!!!!!!! I made Sp4 about a month later. I was a sergeant when I left the army in 71. I'm surprised I wasn't given a chance to start from the bottom again.
