The U.S. Army's Special Forces is a multi-purpose
force capable of rapid response to contingencies
around the world. Called "Green Berets,"
these highly skilled Soldiers are trained in
unconventional warfare, direct action, special
reconnaissance, combating terrorism, information
operations and counter-proliferation. They operate
in all environments and may be called on to
survive for months at a time behind enemy lines.
Operating beyond their combat missions, Special
Forces Soldiers are also diplomats and teachers
trained in foreign languages. They are called
on to teach military skills to people around
the world and support global humanitarian relief
Forces soldiers must be mature and self-motivated;
open and humble; and better conditioned physically
and emotionally than the average Soldier.
