There is no best because they all are the best at what they do. Plain and simple.

I am a little biased in my opinions of SOF, but like Ross said, each is unique and has specific skill sets and ways of operating.

The Navy did have a HVBSS group that was the same as the coasties and was supposed to be able to integrate with other SOF teams

nobody uses the term delta force. thats not what they are called. that's just shit you see in movies and video games. the fact that everyone is using it shows how little everyone knows about this topic.

Agree with every one, but you pick one team that HAS to accomplish every possible SF mission, I think you'll find the seals on top.

Now I'm going to go say three hail mary's to the Army gods for heresy.

I gotta say easy...

Navy SEALS

but im partial to them.
my brother in law in a seal, and he took shrapnel to the head from an RPG, and lives to tell the tale, full recovery. He still has shrapnel in his brain and randomly throughout his body....


love it

The difference between Delta aka CAG & ST6 aka DEVGRU. Is like Ross said anybody can try out for CAG. But you got to be a SEAL and have went through BUDS to try out for DEVGRU. Morale of the story is their all a bunch of bad asses.

A heartfelt thanks to ALL of our military.

You guys (that means, gals, too. It's a midwestern thing ) are one of the bright spots that give us all hope for the future.

Thanks for your service to our country.

Now I'll get the Hell out of here...being a civilian and all.

Edit: Sorry. I'm off topic...

I realize I left off many. I just wanted to include the major special ops forces.

You also left off some Tier Ones (Black Ops)...
Asymmetric Warfare Group (US Army)
24th Special Tactics Squadron (US Air Force)
Intelligence Support Activity (US Army)

I also left off the French Foreign Legion. Besides their goofy uniforms they are probably some of the most BA mothers on the planet. There are many Americans in the FFL.

I'm definitely not an operator, but I have trained with Rangers and guys from the 160th. From talking to these guys, it seems to me that guys from many of these units are task organized in operational detachments. I appreciate the job all of these guys do, and the job conventional forces do to support the many missions the Military is conducting throughout the world.
