      Looks like you got some picking time while you were on vacation. Interesting patches, but I know nothing about them.

      98th Division, but patches are more modern than VN-- they date from the BDU era and beyond.

      The rank on the shoulder tab is for a Sergeant First Class (SFC or E-7). A SSG has only one rocker.

      Also, the 98th Division is a RESERVE unit. When mobilized, they typically are used to train initial entry soldiers.

      Post 911, they were mobilized and actually trained Iraqi soldiers in theater.

      Oops! My last rank was SSG! I should have flipped the image instead of trying to read it upside down..
