Fanciful indeed is the tale woven
about the selection and origin of the
various marks of army insignia.

fence, nelr a group of trees. One of s
these is a sturdy oak and another a r
silver poplar, the tree which grows t
to greatest heights in our forests.
Above this tree files an American i
eagle. It is night and the stars look t
down upon the scene. t
The first step, or first rank of a comn f

officer has his foot on the second bar u

climb upward is the branches of the
trees, and the rank of major, denoted I

for higher rank must now surmount 4
