Delta Force: Army's 'quiet professionals' - Washington Times
Retired Army Col. Ken Allard, a career intelligence officer, described Delta Force members as "quiet professionals. Silence is security."

He said Delta was created in 1979 to often fight alongside conventional forces, as it did in the Saddam hunt.

SEALs generally go on missions alone. Delta's approach, he said, "simply means they can get more done the quieter they do things."

"Ever since Delta Force was created, they have been the quintessential shadow forces," Col. Allard said. "That's not going to change, even with the recent publicity about the SEALs.

"The SEALs are short-term killers. Delta has a lot of other missions. It shows how well-integrated the Delta Force guys are with the conventional forces. SEALs are compartmented. Delta is not."

1st SFOD-D is similiar in this to GRU Spetznaz, they also are quiet, it is also belived that they are using the same uniforms with the same insignia as conventional units stationing nearby, it would not be something strange if 1st SFOD-D would do just the same besides their reported habit to wore civilian clothes.
