Your above post reminded me of this photo originally posted by Wailuna in a Abbreviated Khaki Uniform topic, Date of photo of this Master or First Sergeant, June 1959 as we see.

A photo taken in the Fall of 1961 in West Germany, a SFC of the 24th Infantry Division is still wearing the type, he's actually talking with two reporters from Stars and Stripes.

The PFC standing behind the guidon appears to be wearing the new style new style chevrons while everyone else appears to be wearing the M1951 versions. Also note that there appear to be two different color shoulder chords being worn. I assume the lighter colored ones are Infantry blue, but the darker ones look like they could be maroon for Medical Corps.

He's also the only enlisted man in the photo without a patch on his cap
