The Special Forces Association (SFA) was founded at Fort Bragg, North Carolina in 1964. It was incorporated under the laws of North Carolina in 1971 as the “Special Forces Decade Association.” The SFA is a Veterans Service Organization 501(c)19 whose membership is restricted to “Green Berets” and personnel who have contributed significantly to the support of Special Forces, Montagnards, widows of Green Berets, and Honorary members. The majority of the memberships are Vietnam veterans that played an instrumental part in the award of the “Green Beret” headgear worn by today’s soldiers.
Membership is increasing daily with each graduating class of SFQC. All graduates are encouraged to become a part the SFA, the voice of Special Forces. The current structure includes 85 Chapters spread throughout the United States and overseas. Our Chapters work to unite fraternally all persons who are now or have been assigned to the United States Army most elite force, the “Green Berets”. We strive to perpetuate the SF traditions and commemorate fittingly the memory of all Special Forces soldiers who have given their live in defense of the free world.
Our Chapters participate in fund raisers and events that recognize “Wounded Warriors” from the Special Operations community. Historically the SFA has provided manpower, monies, pamphlets, leaflets, and personal beliefs to educate both members and the public regarding the history, present contributions, and future development of the United States Army Special Forces. We have provided numerous resources to assist the Special Forces units since our inception to insure units are adequately manned and equipped for the defense of the United States by supporting the establishment of the Special Forces Branch as the premiere combat force within the United States Army.
