CAPER Company T-1
CAPER Company T-1 was located at Central State University in Wilberforce, OH. According to the 1967 Pershing Rifleman, CAPER Company T-1 was one of the first 5 chartered CAPER companies, meaning it was chartered before March 17, 1966.
In the 1965 Pershing Rifleman the Pershing Rifles Company T-1 article said "Company T-1's coed drill team, the Pershing Angels, has achieved much this year. Under the command of senior P/R Tommy I. Brown, the Pershing Angels has captivated its spectators with its difficult, but precise, exhibitions. Presently, the Pershing Angels are working towards its first completely silent sequence, a milestone in coed drill."
This means that both future CAPER Company T-1 and Company C-15 were established and using the Pershing Angels name at the same time. At this time, there is no way that we can tell which one used the name first.
In a binder of CAPER documents and letters, I found a letter that I wrote to the PMS at Central State. He had sent us a letter telling us that the company no longer existed. I told him that I would keep their charter active in case they reorganized the company.
