Comments

Thanks Roscoe – the Vietnam List displays the substantive rank at the time of the veteran's deployment to Vietnam. When they served multiple tours – as in Mike's case – the rank will generally show the rank at the time of the first tour. I've added a note above about his rank on his second tour.
