Jack Army says it's "Self-Portrait Friday". Who am I to argue?
This photo was taken on Smoke Bomb Hill following graduation with SFQC 5-81. Back then only paratroopers wore camouflage fatigues. As trainees we had to wear the all green "pickle suit" fatigues even though we were on airborne status.
It's not obvious, but the white-bordered flash on my beret is a 20th Group flash. Later, when I converted to active duty, I wore an all-green flash.
