The green berets, Robin Moore. p. cm. 9781602390171. I helped form the Special Forces Literary Guild to encourage men and women to write books and stories and poetry that would memorialize the military exploits of which they were part. I have also known the equally discordant experience of having women come up to me to say their son read my book, joined Special Forces, and was killed in action. There is no good answer to this. But I do try to encourage such mothers to talk about their sons. This seems to relieve the sorrow with which they will live for the rest of their lives.
We were using Special Forces/Green Berets in an advisory capacity. A very interesting book about the behind the scenes efforts of the Green Berets in Vietnam. Great stuff! The Vietnamese were so unreliable and liable to run during a fight that the Green Berets routinely called them LLDBs (Lousy Little Dirty Bugouts). With Seals, and other special forces of the U. S. Military, these are the very real fear that enemy, and potential enemy forces will face, and learn to cower before. Read some history of the past, and listen to the song. Just like all special forces, I was amazed at some of the things that were done for God and country.
The Green Berets book
The Green Berets book. This book has stories on green berets in Laos with local militias they've recruited and trained hitting the Viet Cong and the NVA (Viet Minh, as they're referred to here).
The Green Berets is a book (. ISBN 0-312-98492-8) written by Robin Moore about the Green Berets during the Vietnam War. First published in 1965, it became a best-selling paperback in 1966. Moore, a Harvard classmate of Robert Kennedy, wanted to write about the United States Army Special Forces.

The Green Berets are divided up into five active duty and two National Guard groups, comprised of multiple battalions of Special Forces soldiers divided into Operational Detachments, typically dubbed "ODAs. These are the troopers who parachute into bad guy land and help make holy hell for the dictator du jour. It was ODA teams that infiltrated Afghanistan with the Northern Alliance and Pashtun groups like the one run by Hamid Karzai that overturned the Taliban.

The Green Berets (Special Forces) are one of many elite groups within the US Army and USASOC. The Rangers are another elite force, as is Delta (CAG) . There are other very small and highly elite groups which choose their candidates entirely off of their reputation. I’m working on a new series of books that utilizes one of these such units, as the character is a former Green Beret (sounds familiar) who is recruited into this world after leaving the service (the smaller they are the more freedom they have with the rules ).

Though fictionalized, The Green Berets exposed the American public to the horrors of the ground war in Vietnam, and gave the men of the Green Berets the recognition they deserved. Here is the tale of the courageous South Vietnamese girl posing as an anti-American Communist to capture the Viet Cong officer who murdered her family. Here is the graft and double-dealing of South Vietnamese officers undercutting America’s war effort.

Green Berets have a better chance of convincing the Navy to adopt a plan if they frame their role as supporting sea-going missions rather than taking over command. As the youngest of America’s military services, the flying branch is always looking to prove the legitimacy of its independence from the Army. Historians and other critics have regularly challenged the notion that the Air Force needs to exist as a separate branch

What others are saying. According to a book by a US soldier, having done Airborne, Rangers and Special forces, they would be sent to the UK jungle warfare training school. Where the UK sent all infantry personnel. His beret patch flash is the 46th Special Forces Company Thailand Ranger Detachment (of the 1st Special Forces Group HQ Okinawa) with the Special Forces Crest. Thought the procedure was to not wear flashy watches but they appear in many SF photos. The Army selects this elite few from among the best soldiers that come to Special Forces Assessment.
