Special Forces Patch
3" vertical measurement on this oval shaped military spec color patch from the Vietnam era. Airborne tab is on top of the patch. In most countries special forces (SF) is a generic term for highly-trained military units that conduct specialized operations such as reconnaissance, unconventional warfare, and counter-terrorism actions. In the United States, the term Special Operations Forces (SOF) is used instead of special forces to refer to the aforementioned units because Special Forces refers to a specific unit, the United States Army Special Forces or 'Green Berets'.
Some special forces operations, such as counter-terrorism actions, may be carried out domestically under certain circumstances. Special forces units are typically composed of relatively small groups of highly-trained personnel equipped with specialist equipment and armament, operating under principles of self-sufficiency, stealth, speed, and close teamwork. Special forces are sometimes considered a force multiplier, as when they train indigenous forces to fight guerrilla warfare.
