What does it take to become a Green Beret? Reach for it if you dare!
Unit and individual Special Forces actions have contributed many courageous and daring exploits in the pages of American history. The story is a recurring one; outstanding leadership coupled with the highest application of skills used in the art of combat.
Today's U.S. Army Special Forces ("Quiet Professionals") are official descendants of WWII's 1st Canadian-American unit originally trained for sabotage missions in Nazi-occupied Norway. With the invasion of Grenada, Special Forces have again served with distinction performing special operation missions in Panama, Desert Storm, Somalia, Haiti, Bosnia, Afghanistan and Iraq; demonstrating time and again the Special Forces Motto: "Anything, Anytime, Anyplace."
Colorado's 5/19th SF has deployed hundreds of times overseas on training missions and were also activated for federal missions to Haiti, Afghanistan and Iraq since they formed - serving with distinction in every theatre as well as missions stateside such as the Cortez Manhunt and Hurricane Katrina.
You can reach Colorado's 5/19th SF Group (Airborne), located just northeast of Denver in Watkins, by calling 720-250-2900.
