Not quite correct. All members of a Ranger Battalion are Airborne
qualified but not everyone who is tabbed is Airborne. I got my tab
before my wings. During training there is an air assult during the
swamp phase, airborne qualified jump in and non-airborne do
a helicopter assault.

Yes. An SF trooper who is no longer assigned to an SF group will
wear the standard uniform of that group but still wear the Special
Operations shoulder badge as well as the Special Forces tab.
And I think that is enough of this totally off-topic conversation, 
fun as it has been.
