GreggK said:if i am not mistaken the green beret in the U.S. army refer to the "Delta Force" the elite of the elite!
Wearing berets will be "another step towards achieving the capabilities of the Objective Force," Shinseki said, refering to the high-tech Army of the future he hopes to launch.
"It is time for the entire Army to accept the challenge of excellence that has so long been a hallmark of our special operations and airborne units," he said. "When we wear the black beret, it will say that we, the soldiers of the world's best army, are committed to making ourselves even better."
It is about our excellence as Soldiers, our unity as a force, and our values as an institution.
Effective 14 June 2001, the first Army birthday in the new millennium, the black beret will become standard wear in The Army--Active and Reserve Components.
