How do you wear a parachute badge with Dress Blue Alphas (medals)? P1020.34F makes is sound like you can, but I've never seen anyone do it before.
Thanks,

Mr. Freely,

I appreciate your concern, I really do, however I don't like putting personal information on open forums accessible by anyone. Besides, I'm only asking an UNCLASS uniform reg question. It's not like I'm trying to get the 10-OOB of 3/2 from you. But good on you for showing some FORCEPRO savvy.

Dude, you don't have to put in your full last name, but please fil out your profile.

No direspect, but you ask a question that should be common knowlege when you earn your jump wings. So tell me how many jumps do you have and what device did they give you?

edit: with the number of posers that we all have caught and have heard about, it makes me more suspicious with newbies

You may have asked an unclassified question, but it is a question we would expect from a poser. We have dealt with one poser too many. Please comply. I still stand with my Brothers. We are not trying to be disrespectful to you, but also consider that it is now a crime to be a poser. You can fill out your profile without having to give away too much...you can hide personal information..if you are afraid that this site will compromise your information, then I would tend to think you are a poser. Fill out your profile please.

William,
Thank you for the professional tone of your post and explaining your concern more clearly. Marine posers are simply not something I am cognizant of. I certainly have heard the stories, but it isn't anything I've ever encountered or really thought about. I can see how it looks like I am seeking uniform reg clarification IOT impersonate a Marine.

John,

Come on man, that's a bit ridiculous. I take from inference that you think hussaf is some kind of Arabic word, well it certainly isn't. Proper spelling of what you wrote, via DoD Transliteration Guide, is 'Salam Alaykham.' Or something close to it, I don't have access to my NIPR or SIPR shared drive just now.

SuperSquishy (is there a story behind that handle?),
When you are in the ridiculousness that is the Airborne graduation formation (I was literally embarrassed by the singing, flapping of arms and stomping of feet, regardless of the fact it was only the guys out in front doing it) they simply pin the lead sled on you and you out process and leave. Believe it or not, they really don't take the time to explain to nearly 400 soldiers the intricacies of properly wearing the parachute badge with Marine Corps Dress Blue Alphas. Yes, there are approximately 200 cats per platoon and two platoons (at least in 1-507th, A Co) of which I was the platoon "Sarn't" of one (they almost always put Marines in charge of platoons, which sucks). The only guidance I received was from the 1st Recon kids in my platoon who said it was gay to wear a lead sled (apparently they were told at BRC, or wherever, that they only wear the badges once they get their bubble and go Duel Cool). To answer another of your questions, and avoid going into much of a tirade, I will simply say that I haven't gotten my gold wings yet.

If you spell hussaf backwords it spells fassuh. Just stick them lead sleds and scuba bubble on there any ole way. Give yourself some other medals to go along with it.

Look up mco p 1020.24 g

So who are you?

That would appear to be a simple question to answer.

Ok Im going to give him the benefit of the doubt. Start at Page 4-0, you will find your answer on page 4-13. However there is lots of info on this chapter.

Im going to PM you with questions I have.

Your post implys that you have some knowlege about germany and possibly me. Look at the gunny on the left of this picture. Jump and scuba with medals. The universal rule is 1/8 inch as in the jump is 1/8th inch above the medal bar and the scuba is 1/8th inch above the jump. If you are in germany look him up. He's a master guns now and works at the mar det on panzer. Something about retaining 03 verses putting on a diamond and being an 8999 had him go master guns verses sgt major.
I digress. If you are in germany I have his contact info.

I know you're here typing some cute response, save it. Don't waste the bandwidth. Do what you are told or go away and ask someone who cares. Nobody wants detailed personal info, just give us the basics: stop talking like you are somebody, and you will very likely get what you requested.

Get smart with me and I'll hunt you down through your IP address and beat the snot out of you. :mad:

ALCON,

efree's Quote of my post made me realize I came off like a dick. I really didn't mean to and I apologize. I already apologized to him personally, but wanted to throw this out there for everyone else.

thewookie,
I don't mean to come off like I'm somebody...trust me, I'm not high-speed at all and didn't mean to make that impression. The fact that I don't ever remember seeing someone wear medals with jump wings should be a pretty good indicator of my low-speediness. Sorry to make you so angry/annoyed. If I come up to Salem for Halloween next year I'd be willing to swing by Boston and buy you a beer (Boston is pretty sweet, anyways).

Thanks to those who helped me out with my (admittedly stupid) question. That's all I really wanted from this forum. In hopes that all feel a little better about this situation here is some BTR/BIR info:

enlist date: 22DEC00
PEBD: 3JULY01
BC: PI, SC; grad sept 28, 2001.
MOS/AMOS; 1341, 0931 (formerly 8531); 0211; 8023
Some places I've worked, lived, played: MCAS New River; Stone Bay (range personnel); Lejeune; Al Habbaniyah; Al Taqqadam; Civil Camp, IZ; Coolie Camp, IZ; "the train station"; Fallujah (in general, AO Raleigh; Dam Neck; Ft Leonardwood; Great Lakes; Cotonou, BN; various others
-I did a 3-year reenlistment last april (got that tax-free bonus).

Again, thanks to those for the help and my best to everyone

That's all it takes, Marine. Nobody wants to harass you for no good reason, we are ALL more then willing to help a brother out, but you have to follow the rules here. WE enforce that for reason -- I'm sure you can understand. Posers can't give details like you have, well, maybe some can, but we can usually find holes in the story, at some point.

Thanks for your service, and your continued service. Semper Fi

I think the lead sled, polished one of course for that uniform, is worn 1/8 of an inch and centered abovce your medals. But, as I've said before, I'm not the uniform guru. Just trying to help.

BTW -- I have no way to find your IP address and even if I could, I wouldn't know what to do next. :)
