The GBF Board of Directors has elected retired Green Beret and Special Operations Commander, Maj. Gen. Simeon Trombitas as Chairman.
Upon assuming this position, General Trombitas pointed out that “The challenges we face to ensure support of the Green Beret community are enormous. Today U.S. Special Forces have the highest per-capita casualty rate of any unit in the Special Operations Forces. Although U.S. Army involvement in the 15-year ongoing ground wars in Iraq and Afghanistan has decreased, the worldwide demand for Green Berets is on the rise. I’ve been working in Latin America, Africa and Asia.
