Over the years, I have learned to chill. Be a more laid-back kind of guy. Not take things too seriously. But one thing that still puts my blood pressure into rocket range and makes me want to throat-punch someone: whenever I hear someone mention Navy, Marine, or Air Force Special Forces.
People, there is only one Special Forces in the U.S military, and that is U.S. Army Special Forces. There are seven Special Forces groups—five active duty and two National Guard. They all fall under SOCOM and are part of the special operations community. SOCOM stands for Special Operations Command. It is the unified command that oversees and controls all U.S. special operations units of all branches, even the USMC (since 2006).
