This is an interesting way of looking at how the the infantry battalion was organized and it also includes the type of weapons provided to each company.

Fun Fact: The youngest serviceman to enlist in the US Army during World War 2 was Calvin Graham who was just 12 years old at the time (and he was practically a war veteran at 13). He was accepted because he lied about his age. After spending six weeks at a boot camp in San Diego, California, he was sent to Oahu, Hawaii at the Pearl Harbor. His story was even made into a movie!
