University of Florida Military Training Certificate Signed by General James Alward Van Fleet 1930

Hidden amongst some old vintage GI JOE manuals and posters we found this cool piece of history today! A Military Training Certificate of the Reserved Officers Training Corps (ROTC) from the University of Florida dated 1930 and signed by then Major, Infantry, (DOL), Professor of Military Science and Tactics, and University Football Coach “James Alward Van Fleet.” James Van Fleet would eventually go on to become General of the United States Army in 1951 during the Korean War and was regarded by President Truman as “America’s Greatest General.” We have not come across any info on the recipient, “Allen William Spencer” but would be appreciative of information any of you might have on him, or this particular piece in general. Cool find 🧐! What do you think?
