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

Special Forces - 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 and mental caliber. Mature, highly skilled, and superbly trained, They are ready to serve anywhere at any time.

Deployed on every continent, operating in remote areas under Spartan conditions, with a tenuous radio link their only connection to higher headquarters, small detachments of U.S. forces are training their allies to defend themselves against tyranny and oppression.

They are the Army's Special Forces, known popularly as the Green Berets.

Often they are the sole American military presence in a nation, every day making tough decisions in unheard-of situations, with no one looking over their shoulders. They volunteered for this duty because they prefer the challenge of working in an austere, uncertain and unstructured environment.

Specially selected and trained, they are America's main weapon for waging unconventional warfare in an age when conventional conflicts have become increasingly rare. In the future as in the past, U.S. Special Forces will be called upon to conduct crucial missions in the face of overwhelming odds.

It is a task they can look forward to with confidence, because the tradition of Army Special Forces is one of excellence. It is because of this record that the modern-day Special Forces remain devoted to their Latin motto,

"De Oppresso Liber" - To Liberate the Oppressed.
