The Capt is wearing a RANGER tab over an AIRBORNE tab over his 197th Inf Bde SSI. He has already been to RVN. Not aware of any airborne elements in the 197th.
Exactly. Of course the RANGER tab is an individual skill award so there is nothing unusual about that. But as you say, I don't know of any airborne elements attached to the 197th unless there was some sort of LRRP detachment. But usually when that is the case, jump wings are worn on an oval which doesn't appear to be the case here.The only other thing I can think of is if it is not in fact an AIRBORNE perhaps it's an HONOR GUARD tab.
