TEC4 - Technician 4 (E-5) was the fifth highest noncommissioned officer rank in the US Army World War II. On January 8, 1942, under War Department Circular No. 5, the ranks of Technician Third Grade (T/3) = (E6), Technician Fourth Grade (T/4) = (E5), and Technician Fifth Grade (T/5) = (E4) were created and replaced the existing specialist ranks. Initially, these ranks used the same insignia as the Staff Sergeant, Sergeant, and Corporal, but on September 4, 1942, Change 1 to AR 600-35 added "T" for "Technician" to the standard chevron design that corresponded with that grade. [2] Despite that, as with the Specialists that they replaced, unofficial insignia using a specialty symbol instead of the T were used in some units. A technician was generally not addressed as such, but rather as the equivalent line (NCO) rank in its pay grade (T/5 as Corporal; T/4 as Sergeant; T/3 as Sergeant or Staff Sergeant). Officially, a technician did not have the authority to give commands or issue orders but could under combat conditions be placed second in command of a squad by a Sergeant. Unofficially, most units treated them as though they were of the equivalent rank of the same pay grade. The Technician ranks were removed from the rank system in 1948. The concept was brought back with Specialist ranks of in 1955. We the people, thank you for your service. R.I.P. Uncle "L.D."
