These are all military academy chevrons, but appear to be old. West Point, The Citidal, VMI and many others have used this type elongated chevrons. Most have the stripes joined at the end with a vertical tie. Two stripes were usually worn by Corporals if on the lower sleeve and Sergeants if worn above the elbow. I'd speculate the one with the old infantry post horn would be worn by a bugler or other musician.
