I recently came across a 1935 series one dollar silver certificate that had typing on it. On the front it says, " CO.C,778 Bn. A.P.O.403. 1st. Platoon " On the back is a list of 24 rank/names, many of which I read about on the history page on this website. If anyone has any info on this; why they did this, if it was common practice, etc., I would appreciate it.
GOD BLESS AMERICA AND THOSE WHO DEFEND HER!

Christine, this practice was used for Soldiers to remember who they went to war with. I've seen this with Airborne personnel during WWII also. My grandfather was with C Co 778th Tank Battalion. Let me know if you get this, and I can see if I know anything else about the fellas listed there.
