    Not so strong script and SEALs can't act for sure. But overall a decent movie, with some good action scenes.

    Movies are fine.

    Read 'The Green Berets' written by Robin Moore about the Green Berets during the Vietnam War.

    It was Special Forces founder General William P. Yarborough who insisted that Moore go through the "Q Course" in order to better understand what made Special Forces "special."

    Moore trained with the soldiers at Fort Benning and Fort Bragg for nearly a year, becoming airborne qualified. He then accompanied them on a deployment to Vietnam in 1963.

    Moore's account included several controversial facts about Special Forces missions that were classified at the time, prompting Moore to publish his book as "fiction".

    I prefer Beckwith and the founding of Delta: Delta Force - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Navy SEAL training is very tough but DEVGRU (SEAL Team Six) and Delta lead what the Americans call SF or more correctly SOF.
