First I will put this out there - I KNOW NOTHING ON CHEVRONS!!! With that said here are two chevrons that come in a lot of patches and other chevrons i got a few weeks ago. These two were in there own bag that had west point chevrons on them. Are they west Point chevrons - I dont think they are but in any case I bought the lot for the SSI and a dress blue SFC chevron for a friend. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If they turn out not to be US militaria i am not going to cry!

 

Thanks everyone,

 

Respectfully,

PFC Kitt

Look like it to me. If not then some other military school.

After having a double bypass this past year, it's time to downsize and pass along much of my 'stuff'. I've had my fun, now it is someone elses turn.

They are used at WP, as well at The Citadel, and even where I went to high school, Camden Military Academy. When worn on the lower sleeve, they are corporals, when on the upper sleeve, a sergeant.

Agree that these are military academy. They may be West Point, but pre 1970's due to the long point and narrow stripes. I have some vintage 1974 with a shorter point, thicker stripes, and more distance between stripes.

 

PFC Kitt's look like chevrons on older cadet coats in the museum.
