Judging from this one photo where we see a Maroon Beret wearing SF Man SKIPH, would it be safe to assume that all these Non SF Qualified but Jump Qualified personnel like him assigned to a SFG will not be of an 11 Series Infantry MOS and would be from one of the Support Branches?, even though as we know he would not be wearing the Blue Stuff even if he was say an 11C.

There are no 11 series assigned to SF groups, not  even in support roles.

 

All of them have some type of support MOS, from cooks to mechanics and everything in between

I was going through my collection and came across a brown Canadian made beret that I believe was worn by a US Army Calvary Unit during the time period when just about everyone was wearing berets. I picked it up a couple of years ago at a flea market. Can anyone confirm that this was ever worn?

Beret will be for E Troop 1st Cavalry (Air).

A Small photo, sorry, but here see's a Marine around 1952-53 in Korea wearing a British Army Beret, Royal Fusiliers, beret no doubt either traded or borrowed for photo

Two 82nd Airborne Division, 2nd Battalion 325th Infantry (Abn) Troopers, companies unknown, Bragg late summer 1977.

1st Sergeant Micheal Dacyszyn, Dacyszyn is interesting, found he was born in 1925, and that means he very well might be a WWII Vet, thus if in Korea and Vietnam in Vietnam which he probably was, and was Infantry each time, would make him a 3rd Award CIB holder, for Vietnam getting one indication he was in the 173rd Airborne Brigade in Nam, but no other info is available, like WWII or Korea.

He's buried near Ft Bragg at Spring Lakes NC, SANDHILLS STATE VETERANS CEMETERY
