Update on those SOCOM bubba's that went to Libya...

This "team" photo of the SOCOM bubba's that went to Libya only to be turned around struck me as odd.  I rolled with it anyway because they were equipped the right way and the airplane originated in Stuttgart.  I should have known better.

A little birdy landed in my inbox and left this note....
Those guys in the photos are staff pukes assigned to a special TF which is part of Special Operations Command-Africa (aka SOCAF) headquartered in Stuttgart at Kelley Barracks. Stuttgart is also home to 1/10th SFG and two Naval Special Warfare teams.
Yeah.  That makes a bit more sense.  The weapons look sparkling new...maybe used once or twice.  No wear on their webbing/packs...also new.  I might be out of line here but they don't have the "hard look" that I associate with someone that depends on their conditioning to keep them alive.

Yep.  Staff bubba's not operators.
