An inside look at Delta Force

This was the first television series to run on Special Operations, was ahead of its time.

The origin of Delta Force.

Compared to our nation’s military history, Delta is relatively young, having been formed in 1977 by its first commander, Colonel Charles Beckwith.

With the growing threat of terrorism around the world, Beckwith saw a need for a precision strike force within the Army after working with the British Special Air Service (SAS) in the early 1970’s. 

Beckwith was tasked to form the new unit and pulled largely from the Special Forces Groups. 

The type of missions the SFOD-Delta has been involved with over the past few decades are classified but some have been de-classified and noted publicly in media reports and books written by Delta Operators. 

Here is a list of several of the declassified engagements:

Operation Eagle Claw – In 1980, during the Iran Hostage Crisis a failed attempt at a rescue due to aviation equipment/operator error led to the death of eight Americans;as a result the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment was created.

Operation Urgent Fury – Grenada prisoner rescue from the Richmond Hill prison.

Operation Just Cause – Panama invasion to capture Noriega and protect some 35,000 Americans living in Panama. Gulf War – Iraq invades Kuwait and the US-led alliance defeats Saddam Hussein and his Army, pushing them back into Iraq.

Operation Gothic Serpent – Part of the Battle of Mogadishu (1993) where U.S. helicopters were shot down and two Delta Operators SFC Randall Shughart and MSG Gary Gordon were awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for their efforts that day.

War in Afghanistan -Within a month of the September 11, 2001 attacks, Special Forces operators aided in defeating and dismantling the Taliban in Afghanistan.

Operation Red Dawn – Locating and capturing Saddam Hussein.

If you believe that actually happened.

Countless Hostage Rescues around the world.

About JCscuba

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.

    Interesting article. The use of deadly force is a learned skill and must be practiced frequently to be effective. There are many examples of Police who die in the line of duty because they did not perfect their skill set of using deadly force and being able to defend themselves while being shot at by the Bad Guys.

    Of course, there are also many examples of the Good Guys winning because they did perfect their skill set.

    The skill level is different for every task and as a civilian I do not intend to put myself into a combat situation. However, in today’s society with lots of aggressive mental cases out there shooting at civilians you just never know what to expect. The shootings in San Bernardino are a perfect example. Innocent people died because of some strange laws in California. These workers at this location were thinking the shooters were their friends. NOT SO with the Muslim faith. The Muslim Jihad is a strange code of conduct that encourages all Muslims to kill infidels – as they define the infidels as any and all people who do not accept Mohammad as the Prophet of Allah and follow the Quran and Sharia Law. A very ignorant and narrow mind set.

    Obama installed many Muslims into powerful positions in America’s government which has lead to many disasters. Trump is such a relief for any and all patriot who loves America. Just look at the Radical Muslim group ISIS or ISIL. Obama would not allow America to simply kill any and all members of this organization. HOW STUPID! Trump took over and ISIS was stopped within just a year or so. Russia came to assist with this task. The Traitor John McCain was deeply involved with ISIS and suffered what all treasonous traitors have happen – executed.

    Form a personal defense and use of deadly force, we, the People, pay taxes to have Police and Armies to protect us. We also havae an absolute to carry a gun to protect us against these bad guys.

    When you vote in November keep that in mind. All Politicians are required to take the Oath to Protect and defend the U. S. Constitution and Senators such as Diane Feinstein need to be voted out of office for being traitors, liars and cheats. Feinstein is the absolute Hypocrite of the year now for many years! Feinstein wants to disarm all of us while she carries a gun! Take away her gun and body guards and make her live by the same rules she wants us all to live by!

    Until an Amendment is passed to change the U. S. Constitution, the Right to keep and bead arms is all Americans right!

    The Constitution is the Law of the Land in America and Feinstein needs to follow the law.

    America needs to return to the Rule of Law!

    “Obama installed many Muslims into powerful positions in America’s government which has led to many disasters.” Probably, besides scandals, one of Obama’s most enduring legacies. Again, totally ignored by leftist media.

      Well said, Being a supporter of former congressman from Minnesota and wife beater the Muslim Keith Ellison was not one of his stellar moves.

      Then again Obama had no stellar moves.

        Yeah, while we were all appalled at Obama, he was totally thrilled by his results. Forcing MSM to defend it all as he stood back was added ecstasy for him. Ellison was just what the evil dr ordered. His proud moments were our never ending nightmares.

        Thanks Bull, Ellison needs to be tried and convicted. Obama was an eight year long Abortion, actually longer since he is still trying to overthrow Trump. He’s walking an even tighter wire toward treason! Thanks for your comments
