Lieutenant Colonel Corso--I find no record of his advancement on
the retired list and when he recently testified before Congress
on POW matters it was as Lieutenant Colonel Corso, US Army retired--
was according to his Officer Qualification Record, Department of
the Army Form 66, indeed chief of the Foreign Technology Division
from 18 April 1962 to 18 June 1962.  This 90 day period was enough
time to give him an officer evaluation report for this position.

(Speculation:  he was put in this position to enhance his records
before a promotion board as he was also, during this short period,
awarded a General Staff Indentifier and awarded the Military
Occupational Speciality of Research and Development, Coordinator.
There is no indications of promotion boards or non-selections on
DA Form 66.  Such items would be in his Personnel File.)

He was *not* Chief of the Foreign Technology Division for two
years as he claimed in his book.  This and other inflations don't
seem to bother people at all.
