Soldier of the 3rd Battalion 4th Air Defense Artillery when it was part of the 82nd Airborne Division. I guess the shoulder cord is scarlett, but it almost looks cavalry yellow to me.

Maybe it's the Finance color rope, that Silver Grey color, and this guy is in the HHB of the unit, the S-1 Shop of the battalion.

Aren't those branch colored cords (authorized and unauthorized) worn on the other shoulder? Maybe it's a French or Belgian unit award.

He does have it on that side atb, it's very light colored, the one on the other side is indeed a French Rope for the 82nd Abn Div.

Transportation Corps. The branch colors are brick red and golden yellow, so I assume this is golden yellow.
