Corps blouses

The blouses were blue, assuming the color didn't change in the 60 years until I wore one.

Where's the bugle boy?

Maybe it's a bit too early to sing about him.

Where is the HokieBird?

It's probably before the mascot's time, but I still searched the trees with negative results. If this were colorized what color would the coats be? Chicago maroon/burnt orange possibly?

And just 3 years later, 1923, the 4 year compulsory participation in the Corps of Cadets was lowered to 2 years.
