Some interesting WWII photos for you all

#8
Pic #36. Since when did two inverted chevrons on the sleeve denote 2nd lootenant?
Jimmy Stewart enlisted as a private in March 1941. He was commissioned as a second lieutenant in January 1942, therefore the year stated on the photo is incorrect. It was probably taken about a minute before those chevrons were ripped off, and replaced by a bar on his shoulders.
