Message: There have been a few questions raised about Planning Bay Honorees. I hope I can clarify how Planning Bay Honorees are chosen. In order to be eligible, a Ranger must be a member of the USMRA (Ranger qualified) AND also have been a Ranger Instructor assigned to the Mountain Ranger Camp (Camp Frank D. Merrill). The Rangers names are selected from the membership roster. If your information posted there does not include an assignment as a Mountain Ranger Instructor assigned to Camp Merrill, you may have been overlooked. You can correct the information by contacting the webmaster so in the future, you can be also recognized as a Planning Bay Honoree. RLTW!

Message: Joey .: We wore no rank during the Course. However, on graduation day, General Creighton W. Abrams was surprised to see ; a Marine Captain, and three Marine Lieutenants standing with the Enlisted Platoon. As he pinned on our Ranger Tabs, he really stood tall as his pinned the Tab on five NCOs, "Buck" Sergeants, from his Division, the 101st Airborne. That was one exciting graduation for all involved.

Message: Mike: the picture with KK's uniform, was in the Sunday Tennesean "Portfolio" section (paper copy). It is not in the online edition that I could find. The exhibit starts May 28. I hope to go on Aug 11. I think you live in the Nashville area like me. I live in La Vergne. Jim: Interesting that they had officer and enlisted platoons in the early 1960s. When I went through in class 11-85 we wore no rank and were mixed in together. If I had not told my classmates that I was a lieutenant, they would have never known. I have no idea how they do it now.
