Am I correct in saying from 07DEC70 until 15MAR72, which would be his ETS date, Mr. DeStefano's last duty assignment was with Co. D. 7th. SFGA - 1st. SF at Ft. Bragg..?

Last question.. In his "Awards & Decorations" there is no mention of a Medic Badge.. Regular Army Infantry received the "Expert Infantry Badge".. After one was deployed and in Combat he received the CIB.. "Combat Infantry Badge".. There is the "Combat Medic Badge".. Is there an equivalant for a Medic who was never deployed..?

Backin' outside the wire.. ... ..
If you are asking for your own education then that's fine. If you are re-instituting some sort of challenge to his record then it is not.
As was already mentioned, the EIB and EFMB are peacetime awards that are EARNED by the individual soldiers who are authorized to attempt to qualify for the badge. Neither is "given". Similarly, the CIB and CMB are also earned during combat deployments. There are many MANY infantrymen and medics who come back from combat tours without these badges.

Claymore is asking simple questions for his own education--not to persecute Mr. DeStefano.

SGM John Letuli he was down on VBC for awhile.

If you're going to claim a SOF title than the individual probably should be prepared that someone is going to check.

Stay safe.
