Seals are Navy

Green Berets are Army

Both small units of highly specialized, trained and equipped killers. There is also Delta Force.

and of course G.I. Joe

GI Joe is the codename for American's daring, highly trained special mission force. It's purpose, to defend human freedom against Cobra - a ruthless, terrorist organization determined to rule the world.

Dick measuring and probably under the table handjobs. Also, I guess it depends on who is training for what. I don't think Green Berets are the same as SEALS are more covert you aren't supposed to know about it stuff. Green Berets are less covert.




Keep in mind that all knowledge I have on these matters are due in large part to video games.

Army: Goes by ground or air to blow things up & shoot people. Because the Air Force owns the fixed wing market, forced to use helos for lots of things fixed wings would be better at. Artillery is a really good way to kill people. Tanks, too. Great at moving shite around the world.

Marines: Not much different from the Army, just smaller & has to split its budget with the Admirals who run things at the Dept of the Navy. Usta be more elite, not so much any more as the Army has raised standards & abilities substantially. Flies jets just like Navy pilots for some reason, helos like the Army, plus those crazy Ospreys. Great PR department. Carries smokes & wallets in their socks they are so damned worried about appearance.

Air Force - gets dragged kicking & screaming to provide ground support. Prays for enemy aircraft they can shoot down. Does a lot of truck driving in the sky to take stuff where it needs to go. Babysits very large bombs. Sends everyone to college cause what else is there to do.

Navy - Hauls stuff & people to the action. Maybe gets to clean up mines or do some offshore shelling. Mostly a really expensive way to provide airports in the ocean so they can act like the Air Force. Prays for enemy ships to leave port so they can be sunk in a multitude of ways. Some bubbleheads sneak around spying & dropping off SEALs. Some bubbleheads babysit more big bombs in unknown locations in the ocean.

Coast Guard - rescues numbskulls, fights the Drug War, & keeps ports safe from terrorists.

Rangers are a specialized Infantry BN which is part of the Special Ops community, but they are not on the level of SEALS or Green Berets.

Not trying to take anything away from them AT ALL, they have a special mission and go above and beyond what a traditional infantry bn does, but they don't get the missions the SEALS and Special Forces do

Green Berets typically work with indigenous people to fight the enemy. They tend to also work in much smaller units or even as individuals at time.

Navy Seals go in and destroy/kill targets. Think of them as a quick strike team.

Delta Force works as an antiterrorism unit.

Rangers work in larger unit sizes, company to battalion. They frick up everyone an everything in their paths.

Coastguard has played an important role in protecting our coast. In World War II they often had the very dangerous job of driving the landing craft on amphibious landings.

Air Force tends to operate in more of a large strategic/defensive force. Navy is more tactical (except Boomer subs) and much more mobile thank the Air force.

The Marines once upon a time we the attack troops on naval vessels. Since that mission really does not exist anymore they now act more like an amphibious army.

The Army is just that...a large body of soldiers working in units top to the size of an army ~60k men. They have traditionally been responsible for very large battles (think France 1944).
