Colloquial reference to the United States Army 75th Ranger Regiment, often referred to as "Special Forces" by people who don't know what they're talking about.
While the 75th is a Special Operations unit under the command of the United States Army Special Operations Command (USASOC), they are in reality the best-equipped and best-trained light infantry unit in the world - Special Forces refer ONLY to the units colloquially known as the "Green Berets." Enlisted Special Forces operators are all non-commissioned officers of the rank of sergeant or above, while the Rangers encompass the entire spectrum of ranks from Private (fresh out of Ranger Indoctrination) up to Command Sergeant Major.
There are three Ranger battalions; two are stationed in Georgia and the other at Fort Lewis, WA.
Can also refer to a soldier who is not a member of the 75th Ranger Regiment who is a graduate of the US Army Ranger School (ranger-tabbed).
"This is my buddy Tom from 2nd Ranger Battalion."
"Oh, he's Special Forces?"
"No, you fucking dumbass, he's Special Ops. Special Forces is the Green Berets."
