Forze Speciali US

US Army Special Forces trace their lineage to the 1st Special Service Force, a combined force of 1.600 American e Canadian volunteers, which was activated on 20 luglio 1942 e disbanded at the end of the war. The 1st Special Service Force served in the Aleutians Campaign in 1943, Italia in 1943 e 1944, Southern Francia e the Rhineland in 1944. Surviving members of the 1st Special Service Force were transferred to the US Army Rangers e the 1st Canadian Parachute Battalion when the unit was disbanded on 5 dicembre 1944. After the war, there was no apparent need for a Special Service Force, but in 1952 the 10th Special Forces Group was raised at Bad Tölz e Lenngries, Germania. In the beginning, many of the soldiers of 10th Special Forces Group were refugees from Eastern Europe.

In 1962 President Kennedy showed his support for the Special Forces, calling the green beret "a symbol of excellence, a badge of courage, a mark of distinction in the fight for freedom". By 1962 there were approximately 5,000 Special Forces soldiers training e supporting allied armed forces around the globe. Between 1966 e 1968, the US Special Forces reached a strength of 11,000 ufficiali e soldati.
