2 cut edge examples, WWII - 1950's.

Patch on the right (no tab) is what was worn when the Division was at Ft. Riley (circa '48 - '53) and

Germany (circa '54 - '58).

Tab would have still been worn on right shoulder for wartime service as applicable.

Here is the cap i mentioned we made for a friend of the company, only features the Mountain tab but was made for a unit of the 10th Mountain Div. I've blanked out the curse word on the back for obvious reasons.

I have a question for the folks here and I hope somebody can answer it or provide a link to a reference. I have a senior NCO in my reserve unit that has a 10th Mountain patch on the right side of his ACU's, what's interesting is that there is a AIRBORNE arc above the mountain tab indicating that a battalion or company had or still does have an airborne status within the division and he participated in a overseas tour in Iraq or Afghanistan. Does anybody know which unit this might be or if it might be a former unit within the division. It had to be sometime after 2001 to the present. I have tried to look for any historical reference but search just keeps coming back to Wikipedia.

 

With that in mind I have seen other Army units with AIRBORNE tabs above their unit patches. Such is the case with a brigade of the 25th ID and 44th Medical Brigade. I have personally seen the 44th MED BDE patch with an airborne arc and heard somewhere that when they were attached to 18th Corps they were in a airborne status but not anymore. Can somebody clarify and explain what was going on with those two units or what is the policy now for determining who gets an airborne tab above their patch. I get it if the unit is much like the 82nd ABN, they are an airborne unit but some of these other units have me wondering. Thanks

The only 10th Mountain soldiers on jump status would be Division LRSD - now LRS as patches points out. The NCO you reference may have been assigned to this unit - even is he wasn't jump qualified. I've been out for awhile now, but I don't beleive the Airborne Tab is authorized over the 10th SSI for combat service. One would need to look through the regs. There could also be a local memorandum authorizing its wear. Could be the NCO wears it to show he was in LRSD, you should ask him. Is his MOS intel? Any Infantry-typw assigned to Division LRS would be Airborne, Ranger, Pathfinder, etc... qualified.

rd12,

 

Thank you for the insight. As far as I know the NCO is a Infantry type, but right now he is assigned to my operations section (S-3 section) (mobilized reservist), also if I do get a chance I will ask him next time I do a weekend drill. I don't know offhand is he was in a LRS unit while with the 10th MTN, again I might have to ask. Also he doesn't have any other type of specialty badges, since his ACU's above his left chest pocket are blank.

 

If there is or was a local memorandum I was hoping to find a link or hope that someone could point it out to me, but I think I'll have to keep asking. In regards to my first post this isn't the first time I have seen airborne tabs above regular army patches. I asked earlier if there was any idea about 25th ID. I did hear that that one brigade that is in Alaska was a Airborne unit of some sort.

Yes, the 4th Brigade of the 25th Infantry Division is an Airborne Brigade and is stationed at Fort Richardson, AK. All assigned soldiers wear the Airborne tab over the 25th ID SSI.

Most likely 1950's German made for wear as a combat SSI.
1948 - 1953 Ft. Riley Training Div ( did not wear tab )
1954 - 1958 Stationed in Germany ( still no tab ? )

Does anyone else have one like the one on top... left bayonet embroidered over the right? I might be looking too hard for variations but this is the only one I have in my collection.
