The article provides information related to U.S. Marine Corps General V. H. Krulak. By the administrative error of some Navy Department quill driver and by the inaction of a judgment-challenged lieutenant commander, he was put after every one of his classmates and denied a day of commissioned service. It was not just about the arbitrary reduction of a day's commissioned service there was money involved. His pay as a 2d lieutenant started one day later than all of his classmates and in a new month. With respect to the matter of money, one month's pay, with compound interest at 4 percent for 69 years, is not small change.
