The Army doesn't call it Boot Camp. Fixed it, so it says "Basic Combat Training (BCT)." Michaeljustman 09:38, 15 May 2006 (UTC)

Army lance corporalEdit

While I believe you are "officially" correct per the Institute of Heraldry (see: http://www.tioh.hqda.pentagon.mil/Catalog/HeraldryMulti.aspx?CategoryId=9168&grp=2&menu=Uniformed%20Services), at least as to modern (i.e., 1965-1968) usage, I believe there was some proposed and/or unofficial use of the term "lance corporal" during that period of confusion. I remember some discussion of this issue at Ft. Dix, NJ (circa 1966-1967) when the new insignia (i.e., one chevron above one "rocker") appeared on the rack in the uniform section at the PX.

However, it does appear that some documentation exists for perhaps its "unofficial" historical use as a rank title in the US Army from 1891 to 1920. Please see the article: lance corporal in the Army section.CobraDragoon (talk) 17:57, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

Private First ClassEdit

The year range given to the Pfc insignia (1959-…) contradicts this page which says that it was was used from 1920 on. From other sources I am sure that it should be 1920. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 77.179.68.199 (talk) 09:10, 13 November 2016 (UTC)

The year should be 1956 (I have changed it). Even though the single chevron for a PFC began in 1920, the size and colors of the chevron and background changed a couple of times. The gold on green chevron depicted in the main article began use in 1956. Thanks for questioning the dates. CobraDragoon (talk) 23:12, 13 November 2016 (UTC)
