    I know of one occasion that happened and I didn't know the man I read about him. Major Richard J. Meadows a legend in the SF community. He dropped out of school at 15 enlisted in the Army fought in Korea and was a Master Sergeant by 20.

    Audie Murphy went from a Private to a Lieutenant leading a company before he was 20 years old in WW2.

    Promotions did not work the same back then as they do now. It was not uncommon for you to get meritorious promotions all the way up the chain. Especially in a high casualty unit.
