Special Forces Tab, Green Beret, SFQC — A vehicle for Chaplains | DVIDS

Historically, nearly every unit in the Army has had Chaplains assigned to look after the spiritual and/or emotional needs of the force, to include elite units such as U.S. Army Airborne, Rangers, and Special Forces. While many Chaplains assigned to these units decide to go through the Basic Airborne Course and Ranger School, which can help them better relate to the Soldiers in their care, few have had the opportunity to attend and complete the U.S. Army Special Forces Qualification Course.

“Support Soldiers such as the Staff Judge Advocate, Surgeons Office and Chaplains, are a necessity to Special Forces, but they are not required and/or rarely offered the opportunity to attend SFQC, without having to re-class (change their MOS),” said Chaplain (Capt.) Mike Smith, now a Special Forces qualified Chaplain with 3rd General Support Aviation Battalion, 82nd Combat Aviation Brigade, 82nd Airborne Division.
