P.G. Boys Get Army Promotions
Two Pacific Grove boys now serving in the United States Army have received promotions recently. Victor L. Rink, formerly a sergeant, has been promoted to the grade of staff sergeant at the Chico Army flying school at Chico. He enlisted in the army in May, 1941. Thomas Ralph Eslinger, who is now stationed at Camp Wallce, Texas, has been selected to attend the Coast Artillery Officer Candidate School at Camp Davis, North Carolina, post officials have announced. Upon successful completion of the course of approximately three months, Pvt. Eslinger will be commissioned a second lieutenant in the Coast Artillery Corps of the army. The selection also means a promotion to the rank of corporal while he is attending school.
