A number of years ago Special Forces wanted a Paratrooper Badge approved for SF qualified personnel.
The above badge was designed and submitted in the 1980's as a proposed Special Forces Qualification
Badge. It was rejected, and the Special Forces tab was instituted as the new Special Forces
Qualification insignia in 1983.
This is a very high quality reproduction of that scarce Special Forces Prototype Parachutist Badge ©
designed and submitted by LTC Robert K. Suchke. It is a beautiful badge and we are pleased to offer it
in Sterling Silver with his authorization and approval.
The Sterling Silver Badge is ONLY available at the USA Green Beret Store
The badge is almost double the weight of a standard Paratrooper badge and is truly a nice addition to
any elite unit insignia collection.
