A new 3rd Lt. who graduated in the same OCS class as Larrabee. The Philippine Constabulary, in contrast to the Philippine Scouts, commissioned Filipinos as officers at the same ranks and pay as white officers and could hold up to the rank of Captain. At first officer commissions were limited to Christians, but eventually Muslims were admitted as well. In 1914 all barriers to rank were ended and in 1917, Brigadier General Rafael Crame became theChief of the Constabulary. Below are newly-minted 3rd Lieutenants in 1911.
