Quote from: mikeylikey on March 17, 2008, 12:28:52 AM^ There were 3 Auxiliaries of the U S Army back then, CAP being only one of them. Also reading it for what its worth, "An" is a descriptive of what is coming later on in the sentence. Don't forget, back then people knew how to speak and write properly, not what we have today. We are lucky if a High School graduate can put together a complete sentence, let alone make a comprehensive statement.
