    Damn, that is sweet! I see he even has the 550 cord bracelets.

    It was kind of you to let him roll his sleeves up a bit.
    OK, so where are we going and why are we in this handbasket?

    Good work.

    Nicely done, rangerg282. The details like his paracord bracelet and the patches really add a lot to him, as well as the securely weaved cableties. I particularly like the patch on his helmet band, with his zap number on it.

Delta, the 550 cord is from my shroud lines on one of my old chutes. Had to trim & cut it down. Hey Danny, made the base an hour. I have to pick a few more to start working on.

    Nice one Ranger. I love the little details you added like the Battle Roster number and Blood type on the K-pot band. Also love the Fun Meter , seems to be pegged out,

    Quick Question,
    how common is it for a soldier in a infantry unit to be double tabbed in Ranger School and SF?
    very impressive bash overall. the small details make the figure look amazing!

    Nice figure. Totally envious.

    So the story behind this guy is that he was ODA at some point in his career, but then went back to a regular infantry line unit? That's typically the case when you see regular Army guys with SF tabs that are not assigned to a Group. BTW, I know in Iraq we were ordered not to use captured enemy weapons, even though guys were doing it at the start of the campaign in 2003. I wonder if that policy has changed since the last time we were there.

    Very cool! I also have a question. In the periods I am more familar with, unit patches on the right sleeve indicated prior combat service. Is that still the case today? I have seen several bashes with the unit patch on both sides, not that is impossible to have served in combat with the same unit twice. thanks

    Yes, it is. Unit patches on the right sleeve still indicate the unit you've served in combat with. Some guys are authorized to wear multiple combat patches (not simultaneously of course). There are plenty of guys doing multiple tours with the same organization. I personally went to the sandbox twice with the Brave Rifles patch on my left and right sleeve.
