I came across this as I was looking for a picture of a suppressed GAU-5. When I first worked with these guys during my time with the 82nd, their uniforms blew my mind. I had to go ask my Platoon Sergeant what was going on. For those that are lost by the Air Force rank under the Double A, this guy is part of an Air Force attachment to the 82nd Airborne. They're part of what is known as the TACP or Tactical Air Control Party. IIRC, for the most part, they're Air Force Combat Controllers, with a handful of radio operators and a Pararescue or two thrown into the mix. They're the ones that lead the 82nd into a combat jump. They're among the first members of the Eighty-Duece on the ground, as they typically call the birds into the DZ. Oddly enough, they're some of the hardest soldiers assigned to the 82nd Airborne Division as well. I just thought I'd share that with you guys as they're not a common sight.
