    Does anyone know if Marine Combatant Dive transfers to Army SF Combat Dive. If so could you share the Army Reg if possible?

    Thanks guys.

    I'm not in the Army but I've known guys who have transferred it over. MCD is SOF certified and most classes have SOF Airmen in it to get their open and close circuit SCUBA qualifications.

    That's what I figured. I had 4 Airmen in my class actually. I'm trying to figure out how to go about it the right way so it's updated on the Army side. I'm down in GA doing my transition now and nobody at Benning has a clue.

    Do you have your certificate? I'm sure you are blowing minds at the boot camp S-1 but an SF battalion probably will know what to do. Several of your awards should transfer over and I've heard that you can turn a CAR into a CIB. I'm sure someone here knows more.

    I am almost sure it is not. I know a few former Recon guys who had to go to the SFUWO course.

    You definitely cannot wear the badge, and if you were not infantry, which you weren't, a CIB.

    You can wear your other dive bubble though.

    Got it. Are they pushed through from TD1?

    Also you can wear airborne wings, free fall, and a deployment patch with your marine division.
