    Large USAF Security Forces Grouping

    Post by nkomo on Sun Jul 25, 2010 1:39 am

    I was able to trade into this group and feel I did relatively well. All in all there were the following:

    7 DCU's with patches
    1 set of reversible Gore-Tex (3-Color to Night Desert)
    1 Ranger RACK with pouches
    1 DFLCS in ACU made by GCS (Garrett Container Systems)
    1 PASGT helmet with Airborne pad and 3-Color DCU cover
    1 Lowering line for a pack
    3 DCU caps
    1 ACH reversible helmet cover with graffitti
    1 Blackhawk holster
    1 leg panel
    1 TBH helmet cover
    1 USAF SF armband with Arabic writing
    1 USAF SP armband with removeable US flag (velcro)
    1 set of ESS glasses w/ bag






    I think the velcro square on the left arm may be for attaching one of the brassards. The velcro square on the right arm....I'm not so sure about. Possibly for glint tape or IR square? Also notice the ghost patch on the right sleeve. 173rd ABN or 10th Mtn. Div.?

    Ranger RACK, PASGT helmet, brassards, and various other items.






    Forgot to mention that the reversible ACH cover also has a bunch pf Granny Smith apple stickers attached to it. Laughing

    DFLCS in ACU pattern.






    The DFLCS came with a few other pouches. I have them stored in the buttpack area.

    Misanthropic,
    Thanks for the compliment. I really like this groupig and it has to rank up there as one of my largest groupings. I like the fact that the grouping had some jump items in it. Not very often that you find a USAF SP/SF that is jump qualified. Well at least not in my neck of the woods.

    Did the ACU shirt come with the grouping? Or was that just a regular ACU shirt you had kicking around? Its VERY cool to see other branches Rank on Branch specific Camo

    Jump Qualified Security Forces....cooooool

    The ACU shirt is actually not part of the SF grouping. It belonged to a TAC-P who worked with an US Army infantry unit.

    Actually...this all came from a surplus store in my town. From what I was told, this Staff Sgt. worked closely with the US Army. Not sure what unit he was with, but I am putting money on the 820th Security Forces Group or the 786th Security Forces Squadron because of the PASGT with airborne set up and the lowering line for the pack.

    This uniform obviously had a US Army divisional patch on it at one time. Does this mean that the Staff Sgt. was assigned/attached to a US Army division? Does anyone know the USAF regulations about the wear of US Army divisional patches on USAF desert uniforms?

    How, I just verify and it was the same armband on ebay, but on ebay it isn't you the buyer ! Here're pictures ;





    This sort of writing design is common of Afghanistan, and little differ than Iraq/Kuweit embroidery. You can look wich USAF SF unit just come back from Afghanistan (or in the past month) and I think you'll have your response. Two same armband on sale at the same period, for me it's a sign that an Security Force unit came back from Afghanistan...
