Combat Applications Group (CAG) better known as Delta Force or Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta is the world’s most elite military unit.
The CAG special operators are well-trained, well-funded, and answer directly to the president. The unit is made up of specially selected operators from all branches of the military.
To even begin the selection process for Delta, one has to be among the best the rest of the military has to offer, and from there all but five percent of the selection class will make it.
The selection and assessment phase is grueling to weed out all but the physically and mentally strong. It consists of physical training exams, weighted road marches, and psychological tests. The few that are selected then move on to a six month training phase to become an actual Delta Force operator.
