Col. Ryan Ehrler, Commander of 1st SFG said “this is traditionally a week of competition, remembrance, and comradery.” Although this year, because of the pandemic, most social events during the week are limited but Special Forces will be “training, pushing our limits, and honoring the legacy of our roots.” The First Special Service Force was officially organized in the 1942 for elite warfare deep into enemy territory. It consisted of about 1,800 Americans and Canadians who were trained in all types of environments including land, sea and air. As widely as they were known, the FSSF was disbanded in 1944 in Menton, France. Special Forces remember the ones before them during this week. Col. Ehrlr states “Today is not just a day to remember those who came before us and laid the foundation for special operations, it is a day to honor our special heroes.”
