Branch PaperSpecial ForcesIn the last century, the shift from conventional fighting to more aid and peace-keeping missions, along with guerrilla and insurgency fighting has created a foreign policy that now calls upon small, highly trained elite units. That is where the United States Special Forces, commonly known as the Green Berets, come in to play.The Special Forces were created in a small corner of Ft. Bragg in April of 1952. At the helm of this new unit was Col. Aaron Bank, an OSS Special Operations veteran of WWII. On 20 June 1952, the 10th Special Forces was formed (later to be renamed the 5th), made up of ten soldiers. Following the 10th, which was specifically designed to fight with guerrillas behind enemy lines of WWIII, was the 77th Special Forces Group in September of 1953. Also based out of Ft. Bragg, NC, was being trained mostly as a special operations group, to be able to respond to any type of rising threat. Following the 77th was the 1st, selected fight in the Far East, based out of Okinawa. From this point onward, Fort Bragg became the nucleus of the Special Warfare Center, now known as the John F. Kennedy Center for Military Assistance. Special Forces have been involved in every major and minor conflict the world has seen since 1955. U.S. Special Forces troops first entered Vietnam for the first time in 1957. In the course of one year, one unit of the 1st was able to train a team fifty-eight men of the Vietnamese Army at the Commando Training Center in Nha Trang. The trainees would later become the instructors and cadre for the first Vietnamese Special Forces units. On 21 September 1961 the 5th Special Forces Group, 1st Special Forces, which would eventually be charged with the conduct of all Special Forces operations in Vietnam, was activated at Fort Bragg. It was at this point, in the fall of 1961, that President Kennedy began to display particular interest in the Special Forces. His enthusiasm, based on his conviction that the Special Forces had great potential as a counterinsurgency force, led him to become a very powerful advocate for the development of the Special Forces program within the Army. President Kennedy himself made a visit to the Special Warfare Center in the fall of 1961 to review the program, and it was by his authorization that Special Forces troops were allowed to wear the distinctive headgear that became the symbol of the Special Forces, the Green Beret. The Special Forces engaged in many types of missions all through the Vietnam conflict, including anything from patrols, raids, medical assistance to locals to dignitary security. A total of eighteen groups organized in the Regular Army, Army Reserve, and Army National Guard. After Vietnam many of the SF groups were deactivated or disbanded. There was always a small contingent of men that were ready however. Special Forces groups were involved in Panama, Granada, other South and Central American countries, along with other actions around the globe. With the...
