The students of universities were only drafted into army for a couple of months after they've finished their training.
LSU was "training" artillery specialists, so it is very possible that Putin was artillery lieutenant. "Core" military was normally of low opinion of these students officers, bcs. of course their military training was rather short and of poor quality.
I was "lucky" to be drafted in these several years when the students served as soldiers after 1st year…and on a first year of my two I was an operator of the same howitzer type Putin recalls.(M-30).

The Russians have a fondness for artillery more than anybody.
