Other Comments:
LtCol. Frank Cline enlisted into the Marine Corps in 1942. Around 1953 the Warrant Officer and LDO, (Limited Duty Officer) programs came out. He applied and was accepted into both. He accepted the LDO program where he rose to the highest authorized rank at that time which was LtCol. During LtCol. Cline's 32 years of service, he survived WWII, Korea and Vietnam. We lost him in 1985 from walking pneumonia. He is buried in Arlington Cemetery across from Headquarters Marine Corps. Here is a URL of a brief history of LtCol Cline. http://parentseyes.arizona.edu/militarynoseart/FrankCline1.htm
