SFW-Basic A number of years ago Special Forces wanted a Paratrooper badge approved for SF qualified. This is a very high quality reproduction of that scarce Special Forces Prototype Basic Parachutist Badge © designed and submitted by LTC Robert K. Suchke (RET.). It is a beautiful badge and we are pleased to offer it in Sterling Silver with his authorization and approval. It is ONLY available at the USA Green Beret Store. This badge is almost double the weight of a standard Paratrooper badge and is truly a nice addition to any elite unit insignia collection.
