I own few modified tigers and have seen many different reference pictures of SOF guys wearing them.
But I have a mixed feeling about this one. I do not like patches on it. Just like others, I suspect that patches were added for veteran parades or events. The patches look practically brand new or otherwise unworn.
The real question is when was this top modified? If it was modified in duration of vets service and was used in deployment, then awesome. Just take off Velcro patches and pins from the top and boonie hat, then store them in bag. If its modified after veterans service, its fake.
As for recon wearing tiger stripe, I havent seen any pictures, nor heard any anecdotes of Recon or MARSOC wearing tigers in GWOT. Recon did experiment with tiger stripe and worn it as OPFOR uniform in 80s, I believe that is what 63 Recon referred to. However there is one thing I learned since collecting the GWOT; never say never.
My thoughts only.
