The US Army just released an official video mission statement for the silent professionals of 3rd Special Forces Group.
According to the Army release, “3rd Special Forces Group (Airborne) is the preeminent special operations force, deploying the DOD’s most competent, adaptable forces worldwide and across the range of military operations. 3rd Special Forces Group (Airborne) provides a scalable and self-sustaining special operations capability operating by, with, and through partnered forces to address our nation’s most complex problems.”
There’s always a lot of hollow banter on who and what special operations unit is the “best.” The fact of the matter is that the US Army Green Berets do the heavy lifting in more real world operations for longer.
The video talks about 3rd Group’s massive commitment to GWOT in Iraq and Afghanistan, and how they’ve now transitioned to taking the lead in Africa. During their ever-changing mission set, the silent professionals use proven tactics, techniques, and procedures developed in past conflicts, and at the same time, must continue to develop new methods to face unprecedented and evolving threats across the globe.
