U.S. Army Special Forces
"The Green Berets"

The Quiet Professionals

A breed apart, a cut above the rest - another kind of soldier. 

Unquestionably the world's finest unconventional warfare experts. 

Fighters of uncommon physical & mental caliber. 

Mature, highly skilled, and superbly trained. 

Ready to serve anywhere at any time. 

Deployed world wide on every continent and in all types of terrain and environments. Operating in remote areas under Spartan conditions, with only a radio link for connection to higher headquarters.

Small Operational Detachments of U.S. Special Forces conduct sensitive, high risk commando operations and gather intelligence. SF Mobile Training Teams (MTT) conduct coalition warfare training with allied forces and train indigenous personal, to defend themselves against tyranny and oppression.

They are U.S. Army Special Forces, known as... "The Green Berets"

Often they the sole American military presence in a nation or conflict, making tough decisions every day in unheard-of situations, with no one looking over their shoulders. 

Composed of "Triple Volunteers", men volunteer for Special Forces duty because they want to work with the best, preferring the challenge of working in an austere, uncertain and unstructured environments.

Specially selected and trained, they are America's main weapon for waging Special Operations (SO) and Unconventional Warfare (UW) in an age when conventional conflicts have become increasingly rare.

In the future as in the past, U.S. Army Special Forces will be called upon to conduct missions crucial to national security, in the face of overwhelming odds and at great risk to their personal safety.

It is a task they can look forward to with confidence, because the tradition of the U.S. Army Special Forces is one of excellence. 

It is because of these special men and their historic accomplishments in battle and in the shadows, that the modern-day Special Forces remain devoted to their motto,

"De Oppresso Liber" - To Liberate the Oppressed.
