US Special Forces counter-terrorism missions in Syria and Iraq get a lot of media coverage, but Green Berets are deployed to over 100 countries on any given year conducting a range of operations as laid out in the unit’s Mission Essential Task List (METL) including everything from counter-proliferation to special warfare. This past May, Special Forces participated in Vigilant Guard 17-03 in Saint Thomas which was no doubt a welcome respite from deployments to hotter and drier parts of the world.
