Hellcat, yes, I was looking at that section, but I don't think NCOs promoted to LT had to go to West Point. If you look at paragraph 569 in the same manual, it talks about a board of officers that would examine NCOs recommended for promotion to officer rank. If they passed the board, they received promotion to the rank of brevet LT. I think the reason that the USMA curriculum was in the NCO manuel was because a cadet did not have a commission yet and thus would have to be considered a non-comissioned officer. Cheers!
