Technician Fifth Grade (abbreviated as T/5) was a United States Army technician rank during World War II. Those who held this rank were addressed as Corporal, but did not have the authority to give commands as a corporal would. The wearers of the rank were often called "Tech Corporal". The pay grade number corresponded with the technician's grade. T/5 is under the pay grade 5 along with Corporal. Technicians were easily distinguished by the "T" imprinted on the standard chevron design for that pay grade.
