1st SPECIAL FORCES GROUP
1st Special Forces Group was officially activated on June 24, 1957, with the activation ceremony being held on July 14, 1957 at Camp Buckner, Okinawa. 1st Special Forces Group was regimented 1st Special Forces Group in recognition of its lineage with the First Special Service Force of World War II.
Special Forces, more commonly known as Green Beret’s, are the Army’s premier proponent of unconventional warfare. The Green Beret’s historical roots go back to elite Army formations of World War II and the Office of Strategic Services, or OSS. The OSS was formed in World War II to gather strategic intelligence and conduct operations behind enemy lines in support of resistance groups in Europe and the Far East. After the war, individuals such as Colonel Aaron Bank, a former OSS operative, and Colonel Wendell Fertig and Lieutenant Colonel Russell Volckmann, both of whom fought as guerrillas in the Philippines, used their wartime experience to formulate the doctrine of unconventional warfare that became the cornerstone of Special Forces. In the Army’s official lineage and honors, the Special Forces groups are linked to the regiments of the First Special Service Force, an elite combined Canadian-American unit that fought in the Aleutians, Italy and southern France.
