National Day of the Deployed - October 26th

October 26 is annually designated as National Day of the Deployed. National Day of the Deployed honors all of the brave men and woman who have been deployed, are sacrificing, or have sacrificed their lives to defend our country. The day also acknowledges their families who are separated from them during deployment and the sacrifices they make in order for their family members to serve our country. Since 2012, all 50 states observe National Day of the Deployed. 

As the threat environment has grown globally since 9/11, the Green Berets continue to be called upon to meet the challenge. Currently, Green Berets are deployed in over 52 countries securing America’s strategic interests. The heavy deployment rotations have come at a price however, as Green Berets have sustained the highest casualty rate in the Special Operations community. Nevertheless, The United States Army Special Forces remain the most capable and effective fighting force that the world has ever seen.
