There will always be arguments about who is the “best,” but the U.S. Army Special Operations troops truly are the most dangerous special forces in the world.
Army Special Operations soldiers have a force of over 20,000 members and make up 70 percent of the special operations troops in CENTCOM’s area of operations.
U.S. Army Special Operations Command has taken a constant and significant role in the seemingly perpetual Global War On Terror (GWOT).
At all times, there are dozens of Army Special Forces troops operating in multiple nations across the globe while the rest of the force stands ready to deploy to any dangerous hotspot in the world at moment’s notice.
The five groups of Green Berets out of Fort Bragg, N.C. and two National Guard special forces groups are highly trained to kick as while also specializing in regional cultures and societies which allows them to easily embed with an array of host nation indigenous forces.
The U.S. Army Rangers are elite infantrymen outfitted with the military’s most advanced war fighting equipment. They are among the most rapidly-deployable troops in the world and train daily to close with and destroy the enemy.
The Task Force 160 ‘Night Stalkers, part of the U.S. Army Special Operations Aviation Command (ASOAC), is the most elite helicopter unit in existence. The Night Stalkers specialize in insertions and extractions of spec ops troops from all military branches as well as friendly nations’ special forces units as well.
