Each branch of the military has its own special forces. These are groups of men and women who have undergone rigorous training in extremely difficult circumstances to be the ‘BEST OF THE BEST’ and usually perform under duress or conditions that are tougher than tough. In Vietnam, one of these groups emerged : United States Army Special Forces, the Green Berets.
Not long ago, the Navy SEALs (where SEALs stands for members who excel in special operations on the sea, air and land) brought Osama bin-Laden to justice.
Some members (and retired members) of these Special Ops Groups have joined together and formed an organization, SPECIAL OPERATIONS SPEAKS. Please check them out their website at http://specialoperationsspeaks.com and donate to the cause of liberty and freedom. It is important to note in this time when liberty and freedom are eroding, that people have the opportunity to make his/her own political statements; and also donate if possible.
This is a very interesting website which reveals how the Special Ops forces have changed the courses of wars or the direction of war. No one likes war, but Special Ops (the name given to all these elite groups of our military) has been able to shorten the duration or decrease the intensity.This list is far from inclusive; rather it is only a start of the current listings.
Special ops forces that you may have heard of are:
Air Force Pararescue
Army Special Forces-Green Berets-
US Army Rangers
SARC-Special Amphious Reconaissance Corpsman
Air Force Pararescut
US Coast hard Rescue Swimmers
These are just a few of the highly trained and secretive special forces.
