    I believe that they are Technician 4th grade stripes. The order is confusing and doesn't match the pay grade-- Tech 5th grade is same pay grade as a CPL and Tech 3rd grade is the same as a SSG.

    More modern Specialist ranks DID correspond to the grade. A SPEC 4 was an E-4, Spec 5 was an E-5...
