How come?

Because line units have a different mission than the STB. Months from now when an STB dude leaves his unit and goes to another , he will be sporting a right shoulder STB scroll, which is a good thing in my book.

Trying to distinguish the shooters from the other guys?

Same unit, one scroll IMHO...you are all there to do the mission

I don't agree. Sure you're all there to do the same mission, but in a socom unit you should have different expectations of what you will be doing in that unit. While I was in, typically every support MOS in Batt (including intel dudes, cooks, motor pool, etc), went to the field, conducted the same training as us, etc. The STB was stood up so that Regt didnt need to outsource from other units anymore. If you sign up for a shooting role in batt, complete RIP, and serve the lovely life of untabbed private in Batt, I believe you should be recognized for it. Should the STB equivalent of the SEAL teams be allowed to wear a trident? No fucking way.

Since the change, there needs to be something to distinguish the differences IMO. They don't get the beret unless they go through RIP. And I like the scroll.

Hell, I was glad when I heard they stopped giving the Green Beret to SF support.

Back in the day, it pissed me off to see women, upon BAC graduation put on a Green Beenie.:doh:

Im also sure that that scroll will unleash a new group of embellishers as well. "I was a Ranger, blah, blah, blah"

Who knows, they have to wear it, maybe they don't care maybe they do. It gives them a level of anonymity that might be nice...when in the rear.

Damn sure wouldn't start shit with anyone just because they have the STB scroll, might walk into a world of hurt!

I'm suprised they don't have the Regimental Scroll...

They know what they do, and I'm sure that's all that matters to them.

no Name just the scuttle But,Rip & Rop Cadre too.

I'm sure They Don't Like it.I got a reply from a Reliable source that they are wearing the new Scroll as we speak.

I've heard it from a reliable source that your 'reliable source' is 'the other site'.

Why the veil of secrecy? :huh?:
