alright, I am fully aware this may result in lethal flammage, but I gotta know. Do all US ARMY SF soldiers wear their SF tab above the ranger tab(if they also have a ranger tab)? I recently was told it wasn't true, from someone who was never a SF soldier, and had my doubts. I figured the only way this would be is if a soldier, maybe an 18d was serving in a ranger regiment after becoming qualified SF. is this the case? let the flames begin!!!

The SF tab is worn above the Ranger tab if both have been earned. AR 670-1 and 672-5-1 have all the answers on the Wear and Appearance of the uniforms and what order Awards and Decorations are to be worn.

i believe

that there is latitude on the positioning of the Ranger and SF tabs on the dress blue uniform, however.

i routinely wore my Ranger tab on the inside position, nearest my heart.

stupid dress blues. They cost hundreds of dollars, and i think i wore them twice.
