Shostie: Wouldn't the Green Berets be a closer match to the SEALs?
whither_apophis: Wrong. Gurkhas.
Pocket Ninja: Anyway, this is all a mute point. One highly trained soldier in the marine core is worth a dozen green berets.

Treygreen13: I see that some people think parachuting is a precise exercise.
lack of warmth: Article doesn't say if the soldiers were using the old airborne style chute or the skydiver wing chute ( I am not going to pretend I know the proper names), for the later would be embarrassing. The former doesn't give hardly any control.The question really isn't Army verses Navy when talking special forces, since the Army is used as a benchmark for how the other branches train their special forces. The real question would be Marine verses Seal. I heard Airforce has a special force now, but come on, they barely train their average soldier how to fight. I had a coworker leave for the Airforce couple of years ago, saying he was going to be a ground troop. I gave him the yeah right look, since the guy weighed a buck twenty. He relented and confessed that he'll be involved with frontline communications, from a safe position. I snickered and walked away. He was one of those 'buy the real military gear to play paintball or airsoft' guys.
Pocket Ninja: Shostie: Wouldn't the Green Berets be a closer match to the SEALs?Whatever, man. The green berets don't even know what color their berets are anymore.Anyway, this is all a mute point. One highly trained soldier in the marine core is worth a dozen green berets.
boloabs: Lt. Col. Dangerfield claims Rangers get no respect.
