|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
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.
