" Standing for Those Who Stood for US "


Fighting soldiers from the sky,
Fearless men, Who jump and die.
Men who mean, Just what they say.
The brave men, Of the Green Beret

Silver wings upon their chest,
These are men, America's best.
One Hundred men Will test today,
But only three, Win the Green Beret.

Trained to live off nature's land,
Trained in combat, hand to hand.
Men who fight by night and day,
Courage pique, From the Green Beret.

Silver wings Upon their chest,
These are men, America's best.
One hundred men will test today,
But only three win the green beret


SF Creed

I am an American Special Forces soldier. A professional! I will do all that my nation requires of me. I am a volunteer, knowing well the hazards of my profession. I serve with the memory of those who have gone before me: Roger's Rangers, Francis Marion, Mosby's Rangers, the first Special Service Forces and Ranger Battalions of World War II, the Airborne Ranger Companies of Korea. I pledge to uphold the honor and integrity of all I am - in all I do. 

I am a professional soldier. I will teach and fight wherever my nation requires. I will strive always, to excel in every art and artifice of war. 

I know that I will be called upon to perform tasks in isolation, far from familiar faces and voices, with the help and guidance of my God. 

I will keep my mind and body clean, alert and strong, for this is my debt to those who depend upon me. 

I will not fail those with whom I serve. 

I will not bring shame upon myself or the forces. 

I will maintain myself, my arms, and my equipment in an immaculate state as befits a Special Forces soldier. 

I will never surrender though I be the last. If I am taken, I pray that I may have the strength to spit upon my enemy. 

My goal is to succeed in any mission - and live to succeed again. 

I am a member of my nation's chosen soldiery. God grant that I may not be found wanting, that I will not fail this sacred trust.
