Question: I saw a military marker at a cemetery with abbreviations I do not recognize.  Can you refer me to a cheat sheet?  For instance what is a "T SGT."

 

Answer:  I would suggest a a list that I found online PDF from the Veterans Administration - http://www.cem.va.gov/CEM/docs/abbreviations/Ranks_Army.pdf     To answer your question regarding "T SGT." that is a Technical Sergeant.
