National Guard Special Forces Seeking Members

The U.S. Army National Guard Special Forces has played an important role in the defense of our country since September 11, 2001.  The 19th and 20th Special Forces Groups of the Army National Guard are two of the seven U.S. Army Special Forces Groups that belong to the United States Army Special Forces Command.  Each of these National Guard groups has deployed numerous times over the past several years to Iraq, Afghanistan, and other locations around the world.

The National Guard Special Forces is constantly recruiting new members for its operational detachments and support units that are located around the country. The units will accept former Green Berets who are already trained, prior service members from other units (all job specialties), or individuals who have never served. There are training programs for all individuals who wish to join a Special Forces unit.  The website link found below provides information on Special Forces training, locations of National Guard Special Forces units, and who to contact if interested in joining a National Guard Special Forces unit.
