First, I wasn’t posting this to be an asshole. Sorry and I do mean it.
Second, I just don’t understand the difference between Delta Force, Seals, Marine, Army Rangers, Green Berets, and such. I just want to know, that’s all.[/quote]
Delta Force (Detachment D) is Army. An elite unit drawn from the Special Forces and Rangers. Which are also highly specialized troops. They are at the top of the food chain in the Army Spec Ops community.
Seals are Naval Special Forces. Trained to attack from the Sea, Air and Land (seal). Legendary difficult training and selection.
The Marines are part of the Navy (sorry Marines). The Marines operate as Naval infantry. They are trained to attack objectives by amphibious landings. They are a smaller force then the Army. They also provide secrity on some surface vessels. A legendary tradition of toughness on the battlefield. Marines provide their own Close Air Support, Armor and artillery and don’t expect or want that support from others.
The Rangers are Army. Highly trained, more so then regular troops. Airborne qualified. They also operate in larger detachments typically. They are not heavy troops so they are best for lighting quick raids and taking objectives. They should not be used against a mechanized force for example.
Green Berets are Army Special Forces. Drawn from Airborne and Ranger units they normally operate in A Teams which are squad level if I remember correctly. They are used for lots of different missions. One of the missions they specialize in is training other armies, militia and fighters friendly to the United States. A SF A Team can turn the tide in a small war by training and equiping a local force. Samll countries often benefit greatly by being trained by them.
The Special Forces are controlled by the Special Opereations Command, which is too convoluted to even describe on this forum.
I don’t think you were being a dick.
