Looks to be for E5 and above with enough time in Bat for the U SQI, otherwise it'd be the V, and the leg rangers retain the G

Infantry Blue. Something Person Other-than Grunts will never understand.
I just edited this, not using the acronym POG (even though the military is full of them, acronyms not POGs) so I would be more "politically correct", and try not to offend them.

Food for thought, POG person other than grunt is a good thing that means your trained in a certain job. The acronym GRUNT is as follows.
G- ground
R- replacement
UNT- untrained

SGM. Dawson, Good on you. I mean that. As part of my accoutrements I have a French Fourragere from my time in 3rd ID and a Bronze Shutzen (had problems with the G-3) and the fact that I spent nearly my entire active duty time with 11 and 19 series I have the utmost respect for those of us that got down in the mud. That said, The flag aside. (as I don't view it as a patch but something of far higher status) I am most proud of the patch I had on my right shoulder and the bands and hashes on both sleeves of my dress uniform. Many of us, spend out careers training to go to war some are sent to test those skills and be tested in the crucible of combat. going in we are raw material, coming out we are fire hardened steel. Sharp as a razor. But the patch I most admire but could never qualify for was Tomb Guard. Even now I choke up a bit thinking about the honor of their sacred duty and the reverence they show our fallen brothers and sisters. To all here, no matter what service or who they are, I salute you all. As we swiftly come up on our "official" day of remembrance, I would like to raise a toast to all those come before, all that stood beside, all that will go forth, and finally all those that gave their last full measure. "TO ALL OF US!" And one day I will see you in Fiddlers Green, I'll save a table.

SGM Mikel Dawson - I have read your replies to some of the folks here and in my personal opinion, many of them have been very unprofessional. You have the blue cord and are proud of it, that is great. A lot of those junior troops you are disrespecting on here may not have a cord that is awarded to anyone who can complete the AIT for that MOS, but they have been downrange in harms way. While you would say that I don't understand the brotherhood of the blue cord, my impression is that you don't understand the brotherhood of those who actually were in combat regardless of their MOS. In Iraq we even had AF transportation units running convoys outside the wire. They aren't grunts, but they performed their mission in hazardous conditions and deserve respect, not scorn because they don't have a cord.

When you turn: "BLUE: that is forever." When you change MOS's you are still "BLUE."
It follows that the Blue Cord remains with the soldier that earned it!

Got my Pathfinder in the 60's. Survival rate wasn't too good though in the Nam. Had to go out and look for missing teams regularly.
