I don't think the 167th Support Brigade was ever an Airborne designated unit, so why an Airborne tab? Was he assigned to an element of the 167th that was Airborne? The SSI was approved for the 167th Spt Bde in 1969; redesignated for the 167th Spt Cmd in 1976; redesignated for the 167th Sustainment Cmd in 2006. It is a unit of the Alabama National Guard.

Found your man I think, by this info he was at first an EM, the 1977 date of discharge may be the date he left the service and went to school and would later come back in as a officer in the National Guard, probably around 1977-78-79, maybe 1980, it depends, by using these dates, that he's a 1st Lieutenant by the time or shortly after the time the SF tab came out makes sense.

Yes, I know. I was wondering about why an Airborne tab was above the 167th SSI.

Is that what you meant?
