They are more accurately referred to as "special operations forces." Special Forces (always capitalized), or "SF," is the proper name of the U.S. Army Special Forces, whose Soldiers are also known as Green Berets.<end>

The day after 9-11, I told my brother-in-law (Former Marine Capt) that my thoughts went out to the Special Forces soldiers that must be putting boots on the ground, somewhere.
He gave me a smug look and said "All of our forces are special" .... asshole

:mad:

Blame it on a poor choice of names by Col Bank 60 years ago.

:munchinThe other choice was: God-like Creatures who walk on water.
I don't know how that one lost out.
But, if you ever listened to his dinner speech about the stately row of grand oak trees

WTF blame it on Col. Bank? Damn! F.cking libthink.

It's the jealous assholes' fault.

That's like blaming the guy who named sports teams after Indians, because, now, it's not politically correct.

I think you might find this a little funny.

My son had some of his friends over and they were coming out into the yard to play Army when one of them said he was going to be Navy special forces, then another chimed in and said he was going to be Marine special forces and before another person said anything Tom stopped them. He counts them.

"Jacob and I are Special Forces"

"William can be a Navy Seal"

"Andy is a...DAD!! WHATS THE SPECIAL OPS GUYS CALLED IN TH AIR FORCE!?

I yell back, "PEE-JAYS".

Tom tells Andy he is the PJs..."PJs? What are PJs", Andy asks shocked.

Before I could say anything William chimes in..."They sleep when we attack!"

"Can I be a PJs when we play", Jacob asks.

:D
