United States Army Special Forces (Green Berets)

Known as the “Quiet Professionals”, Special Forces Soldiers maintain a proud history of not seeking recognition for their deeds, but recognizing that they are accountable to the American public. They represent 62% of the casualties in the Special Operations Community since 9/11, and the need for their special brand of military expertise has never been greater.  Green Berets will be on duty in over 70 countries around the world tonight, training indigenous armies, forging strong relationships with local communities, fighting heavily-armed rebel forces, liberating the oppressed, and providing a first line of defense in our fight against oppression and terrorism.

 

Leadership – Board of Directors

The SFCT has an all-volunteer Board of Directors consisting of thirteen (13) Governing Members and four (4) Honorary Members. Since the inception of the organization in 2010, 100% of Board Members have financially contributed to the organization annually.
