Fort Carson Green Beret colonel makes rare speech


The commander of Fort Carson's 10th Special Forces Group wouldn't say where his Green Berets are, and not much about where they have been in 12 years of war. But the Wednesday speech by Col. George Thiebes was a milestone. The commander of the region's most secretive unit spoke in public - something that hasn't happened in years. Thiebes addressed a Colorado Springs Regional Business Alliance Luncheon and discussed Special Forces culture and core values that he said will allow Green Berets to face the future with few changes.
The reason the Green Berets will seemingly stand still as the rest of the Army
endures the convulsions of the post-war Pentagon is that units such as 10th Group have thrived on uncertainty and constant change. "What will be required of our Green Berets in days ahead has not changed," Thiebes
said. One fact Thiebes revealed: 10th Group troops have been busy. In the past year, 1,000 of the soldiers have worked in 42 countries - primarily in Europe, Africa and the Middle East...............
