Member of the 2nd Battalion 321st Artillery of the 3rd Brigade 82nd Airborne Division in Vietnam. All members are still wearing their stateside OG-107 fatigues early in the 82nd's Vietnam deployment in 1968.

Here is a group of soldiers from the 2nd Ranger Battalion is receiving awards at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Washington. I'm not sure of the exact date but it's obviously after 9/11 and before the Army Greens were phased out. Pay close attention to the corporal. All of the other soldiers are wearing Combat Infantryman Badges and Infantry distinguishing devices (blue shoulder cords and discs behind their branch insignia). The corporal is Ranger qualified but wearing a Combat Action Badge. A blowup of the picture shows he is wearing Artillery branch insignia. Also note the two soldiers on the right do not have RANGER tabs.

Corporal wearing the Air Defense Command SSI in 1964. I would assume he was a guard dog handler assigned to a missile unit.

You might be correct there, here's one, this taken at Bliss, also in 1964.

NCO's of the Kentucky National Guard's 2nd Battalion 138th Artillery at Fort Hood after being mobilized in 1968 and before being sent to Vietnam later that year. Note the mixture of subdued and full color sleeve rank with the subdued insignia being fairly rare stateside. Apparently the battalion was assigned or attached to the 1st Armored Division during its pre-deployment training since pictures of soldiers from the unit taken at the time of their mobilization show them wearing the First Army SSI.

Found a few from the 1st Armd Div's Yearbook of 1969, in these three examples the Corp's are not Arty or of any other MOS but rather non Artillery combat arms, begs the question if the reinstatement if you will of E-4 Corporals in combat arms other than Artillery and or Pathfinder (Infantry) came about at this time in 1969.

Another Armor Cpl in the MOS 11E, this time in the 1st Battalion 81st Armor, this one probably is the commander as he's standing in the cupola.
