Lt. Jeffrey Wallace Green wearing the SSI of the Fourth Army with all of the Infantry paraphernalia including numbered branch insignia, shoulder cord and bib. I can't make out the DUI or number on the crossed rifles, but I believe it may be 30th Infantry. The 2nd Battalion 30th Infantry was assigned to Fort Sill, Oklahoma during the Vietnam War and was awarded multiple Presidential Unit Citations and the French Fourragere Lt. Green is wearing. Lt. Green was killed in action in Vietnam on 20 February 1968.
