Great picture! What rank's he got in the Bundeswehr? I'd love to say Captain, but that's just because that's what the insignia stands for in my country xP.

Schönes Bild aber wer dienst in unserem Land denn bitte noch aus Vaterlandsliebe? Ich kenne keinen! Nichts gegen dich das Bild ist super geworden aber die NVA war besser als die BW!

hmmm naja stimmt schon aus vaterlandlibe macht das bestimmt keiner...oder nur wenige aber ich klaube in der nva war das nicht viel anders...den das volk war ja unzufrieden mit der regierung von daher klaube ich wenn es die wehrpflicht nicht gegeben hätte, wären nur ein paar hundert zur nva gegangen...(finde aber auch das die NVA besser war, rein von taktik und ausbildung)

Most likely not killing. Unless they're a special division, unit or they volunteer the chances are slim that a BW soldier will actually see the frontlines. Even a major part of the working forces in war zones don't necessarily do the fighting. Even the tunnel clearance OPs have mostly either been given to the Military Police in conjunction with the KSK or PzH 2000s  - at least afaik. (forces in major war zones will most likely also retreat in the next 1~3 years)

What is the significance of the badge on his beret? Unit insignia? If I'm not mistaken, US Army berets all have the same badge, but I could be wrong.

War is an unfortunate reality in our time, and soldiers have to bear its burden of fear, loneliness, tough work, and lost dreams. Nov. 11 is our reminder of that.

In the German army, the green barret signifies that he is either a member of the Mechanized Infantry or the Rifles Corps. In this case is signifies the Rifle Corps given the emblem he is wearing, the three golden oak leaves of the Jägertruppe, or the German equivalent of your "Rangers". 

Hope it helped ;)

This is a very inspiring, lovely, and touching photo!!! :D :D :D it helps remind us of the men and women (like your brother) who bravely serve our country against those who would do us harm. You know, statistics say that around 1% of the citizens of this country go into uniformed service, and I must say it is an honor and a privilage that I know people from that 1%-both active and retired. Veterans, God bless you always, we thank you for your service, sacrifice, and selflessness. Soldiers, God bless you and keep you always, so that you may make your country proud and return to your loved ones safely and soundly. God bless those people who chose to be a part of that 1%, because they are the reason that we are one of the greatest, brightest, and most free countries on the planet. God bless America.
Thank you for posting this-it's really inspiring to me (especially because I myself want to join the military.) Congrajulations on the DD; it's obvious that you deserve it!!!! Happy Veteran's Day; God bless you and your family!!! Tell your brother that I said thank you, please!!! :D :D :D

Problem in germany is: Most people in our country equal patriotism and national-socialism (nazis) ... besides of that soldiers are not that popular in germany
My guess is: Germans got to less patriotism, Americans got to much (no offense)... Hey, how about you guys send us some xDD
