No. 45 Royal Marine Commando, 1941. Components of the British Royal Marines, commando troops were the ancestors of special forces with the mission of penetrating enemy lines to reconnoiter, sabotage, and provide "on the ground" intelligence for incoming attack forces. These specially trained green berets, Winston Churchill said, would  "develop a reign of terror down the [continental] enemy coast".

I was recently asked: Which is "proper" or preferred by these men when referring to them, "Green Beret" or "Special Forces"?
