Although U.S. Army involvement in the 15-year ongoing ground wars in Iraq and Afghanistan has decreased, the worldwide demand for Green Berets is on the rise. I’ve been working in Latin AmericaAfrica and Asia. Our guys are engaged all over the world. The Green Berets’ resolve to support this country is unparalleled.
