Why the US Green Berets are the smartest, most lethal fighters in the world | Business Insider

Though the US Army celebrates its birthday on June 14, 1775, it didn’t have the special operators with their distinctive “green beret” until much later.

Army Special Forces got its start on June 19, 1952, and since then, its soldiers have been at the forefront of fights in Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, and today, are advising US-backed forces inside Syria.

They call themselves the quiet professionals, and they are one of the most elite fighting groups in the world.

Their mission is unconventional warfare — taking small SF teams to train and lead guerrilla forces.
