When you left you could no longer wear it. just like a Ribbon that was awarded to the unit, some reason but you were not in the unit when it was earned. When you left that unit you were no longer authorized to wear it.

Depends on how long ago it was you're talking about. Green Beret, Maroon Beret, half flash, full flash, 18 series, everybody wears a beret, nobody wears a beret - all depends on the time period.

Things in Group have pretty much settles down. 18 series wears the Green Beret - everybody else wears the Maroon Beret.

Of course that is all subject to change if some touchy feely General gets a wild hair up his ass.

I went through Dive and EOD school with a former SF Soldier who enlisted in the Navy, did a tour with EOD and then went back to SF. Initials are B.P. and school time frame was 2001-ish. I'm sure some here know him.

This is probably more common than people realize as I had a former 75th guy, a former SF Soldier and three former Recon Marines in my class. The appeal seemed to be (pre-9/11 anyways) that you could gain a new technical and marketable skill set while continuing to go downrange, do cool shit and collect all of those wonderful special pays like dive/ jump/ demo/ language/ etc. My first three bosses in EOD were all former Frogs.

With GWOT this sort of thing became almost unheard of although there is a former 75th guy on this board who was a student at EOD school while I was instructing but, God knows why, he stayed Army.

Apologies, just realized this was the SF forum, did not mean to intrude. Stumbled onto this looking for another thread.

I marched in the Veterans Day parade in Phoenix. While waiting, a Marine walked up and asked me whether a would pose for a photo with Colonel Littlehawk, a combat-wounded SF (OD-D) Vietnam vet. According to what I was told, Littlehawk was shot multiple times while getting out of a helicopter. The colonel is definitely disabled and I知 not Army (or SF) but I知 can稚 imagine that it痴 common to have an O-6 in a hot LZ. I asked my neighbor who was SF to nose around, and he came up empty. Can anyone verify?

Any 7th group guys on around? I知 working with a dude that has claimed 7th group (and 3rd and 5th but primarily 7th). I知 a Bravo from 1st an19th but the dude avoids me like the plague. He holds a six figure position based solely on his SF stories. The time frame he claims is 2004 to 2001

2004 to 2011

I was in A co. 1/7th during that time. Group is not a small place and most 6 figure jobs require a DD214 not just stories.
