Service Before Self: The Evolution from Cadet to General

Citadel Full Dress Blouse, circa 1975

Wool with Brass Buttons and Braiding

Loan from General and Mrs. Glenn Walters

This full dress blouse was worn by General Walters as a cadet. The chevrons on the sleeves indicate that he was a Second Lieutenant while the three gold stripes on the lower sleeves indicate his status as a first class cadet. The ribbons on the right-side chest are for (left to right) Junior Sword Drill and Varsity Athletics as well as a Marine Corps Commission Badge.
