The United States Army Special Forces, known as the Green Berets, produce some of our nation’s finest and most elite military personnel, who fight across a broad spectrum of missions, in the pursuit of freedom for those oppressed and to protect our nation from those who seek to do us harm. They are known as our country’s quiet professionals. The Green Berets have been defending our nation against its enemies throughout the last 5 decades, in times of peace and war. Since their establishment in 1952, Special Forces soldiers have operated in Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Guatemala, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Colombia, Panama, Haiti, Somalia, Bosnia, Kosovo, Persian Gulf, Afghanistan, Iraq, the Philippines, Syria, Niger, and in an intelligence, logistics, planning, and training (FID) role in East Africa.
