Senior Corporal acting as Platoon Sgt
While stationed at Camp Foster I was third Squad leader. For some reason when our Sgts rotated out there was a mix up and no Sgts roatated in. at the age of 19 I found myself the Senior Corporal and was positioned by my First Lt to be the Platoon Sgt until some Sgts rotated in. At 19 I was in charge of 48 men and millions of dollars of various heavy equipment.
