Sure don’t. She doesn’t have a tab either. I’m not impressed.

But neither does the dude behind her left shoulder.

I'ts likely a photo taken while she was in IOBC or maybe the day of their graduation as she is wearing the 11th Regiment DUI, and has crossed rifles-- the shoulder boards look washed out but in certain lighting the light blue often does. I'm guessing she and the rest of her class attended (or are attending) the next Ranger class.

As a former Infantryman, they look very much like the powder blue of Infantry dress uniform regalia. Its much lighter than the blue chord they wear.

As others have said its probably an IOBC (or whatever its called now) grad pic. 90% of them do not have their Tabs yet but for most of them that is their next stop.

Yeah, I’ve been around enough IN shoulderboards to know what they look like. I’ve simply never seen them distort like that in a pic.

And yes, I know they’re likely freshly MOS Q’d. I also see the 11th DUI she’s wearing. The tab bit was smartassery on my part. I’d have to assume that an IN O without a tab even today is still considered suspect, and that’s what I was hanging the comment on
