Excerpt from A Manual for Aspirants for Commissions in the United States Military Service

In 1901 the writer prepared a little volume called "A Manual for Aspirants for Commissions in the United States Army." It was well received and, it is hoped, served as an aid to many aspiring and ambitious young men. But the rapid changes taking place in the Army following the Spanish-American War soon placed this little work in the back-number class. An effort at revision has been repeatedly attempted, but lack of time has always prevented the completion of this work. The changes in the Service have gone on until now a revision would mean practically new matter throughout, and to call it a "revised edition" would be stretching the imagination beyond its guaranteed elasticity, so a new volume is here offered.

The former book dealt with commissions in the Regular Army only. This one includes the Porto Rico Regiment, the Philippine Scouts, the Philippine Constabulary, and the "qualified list" for commissions in a volunteer army, should one be required to meet the contingency of future wars. The very latest orders covering the examinations for appointment in the different organizations here named have been sought, and it is believed the work is strictly up to date in all these matters.

While there is considerable original matter, most, or at least a great part of it is copied from General Orders, as it is thought best to take the original as it comes from the Adjutant General's office, rather than attempt any interpretations with the possibility of causing someone to make mistakes for which they could justly hold the writer, or compiler, responsible.
