The headwear was inspired by the British Royal Marine Commandos. If you're referring to the movie, it was a pro-Vietnam film based on the US Army Special Forces.
"The Green Berets" is a nickname referring to the United States Army Special Forces. After being selected for and completing the Special Forces Qualification Course, conducted… at the Special Warfare Center (SWC) in Ft. Bragg North Carolina, soldiers are allowed to wear the Special Forces tab and the Green Beret. However not long ago, anyone working in Group Support Battalions were allowed to wear a green beret. This was reversed and stands today allowing only those holding the Special Forces Military Occupation Specialty to wear the Green Beret. Additional Answer The green beret is also worn by Royal Marine commandos, and this predates the US special forces' use of the green beret. The green beret must be 'earned', as it is only issued to a marine upon completion of training.
According to the latest statistics, the average earnings for green berets is $52,000. Pay can vary depending on professional experience.
Entry level into the US military. The training is such, that a man would be at least 18 or 19, or older before he could even win the "beret." The process is long.
He's still a serviceman subject to military pay grades. If he's a Staff Sergeant, then he draws SSG pay (E-6 pay), etc. All servicemen (during the Viet War anyway) drew additi…onal pay for: Airborne (called jump pay), Combat, Over-seas, EOD, etc.
yes they do and are very good at it, but green berets also do unconfentional warfare. That is where they will train different countries.
Are you serious? Marines vs Green Beret even if you said marine recon that would still be a silly question. Now in todays military the marines have there own special forces pr…ogram that is mirrored after the green berets because the marines where loosing there best men to the seals so they started there own program. but, it is new and still in the working out the kinks stage but, in a decade we can compare but, they are still to young to put it in a sf, seal, delta category.
there are a couple ways to start out, first go to a recruiter and ask about it he then will set you up to a sf recruiter. The most common is while you are at your unit get in …touch with your retention office and they can tell you when the next post meeting is. Then you go to the meeting the guys who give you the class are sf qualified recruiters and will tell you the history, mission, what to expect, ect, ect, then they will walk you through it from there.
No. Women serving in the US army are prevented from obtaining a combat arms Military Occupation Specialty (MOS). All US army Special Forces (Green Berets) MOSes are under the …category of "combat arms" thus preventing females from trying out. However women are allowed to work in various support roles for Special Forces.

We have access to the same vehicles used by conventional forces and we also use civilian pickup trucks or whatever else we can get depending upon what is available in differen…t situations. Just for example an ODA may use HMMWV, GMV, Quad-4's, Harley Davidson dirt bikes, Kayaks, Zodiac rubber raiding crafts or as I mentioned previously civilian pickup trucks or during the first few months in Afghanistan a few of us conducted operations on horseback
In US Army
If you're doing it for the money, don't. The pay is the same as any other service, except for a few bonuses that range from $60-$1000 per month.
In Navy SEALs
There are roughly 4500 estimated Green Beret soldiers. it is said that the Green Berets make up less than 1% of the US army's population.
