Army to establish special forces-like teams after Green Beret deaths in Niger | TheHill

Army chief of staff Gen. Mark Milley said the service’s train, advise and assist (TAA) mission will likely grow after four Army Green Berets were killed last week while embedded with soldiers in Niger.

“We are training, advising and assisting indigenous armies all over the world,” Milley said Monday at the Association of the United States Army’s annual meeting in Washington.

“And I anticipate and expect that’ll increase, not decrease, in years to come.”

Four Green Berets were killed and two were injured on Oct. 4 after their group of a dozen U.S. soldiers were ambushed while conducting a joint patrol with about 40 Nigerien soldiers
