Ballad Of The Green Berets

As Written & Performed by SSgt Barry Sadler

Special Forces Paratrooper

Fighting soldiers from the sky
Fearless men who jump and die
Men who mean just what they say
The brave men of the Green Beret

Silver wings upon their chest
These are men, America's best
One hundred men we'll test today
But only three win the Green Beret

Trained to live, off nature's land
Trained in combat, hand to hand
Men who fight by night and day
Courage deep, from the Green Beret

Silver wings upon their chest
These are men, America's best
One hundred men we'll test today
But only three win the Green Beret

Back at home a young wife waits
Her Green Beret has met his fate
He has died for those oppressed
Leaving her this last request

Put silver wings on my son's chest
Make him one of America's best
He'll be a man they'll test one day
Have him win the Green Beret

Ballads of the Green Berets on CD

Ballads of the Green Berets topped the album charts in 1966 and the title track reached number one and
number two, respectively, on the pop and country charts. Despite the Hollywood heroism of the hit single,
the album offered an occasionally gritty portrait of the war and, unlike Johnny Seay's American Reflections
album from the same year, focused on the dedication and hardships of American men and women in Vietnam
rather than explicitly political or patriotic concerns. Sadler wrote all of the material himself, and his sentimental
vignettes struck a chord with Americans who were desperate for a less-contentious perspective on the war.
Mostly a historical artifact today, Ballads of the Green Berets is a nostalgic trip back to a tumultuous time.

The Green Beret

10th Group ~ Beret & Blade

The men of the Special Forces are masters of their profession,
the profession of arms.

Theirs is more than a job or an occupation.
It is a way of life that requires
a personal commitment found nowhere
else in society. Its obligation is
dedication...it's demands, duty and
loyalty...it's principle, integrity
...and its reward, personal satisfaction.

Their countrymen see them as the
epitome of the American fighting man.
Their badge of distinction is the
Green Beret known and respected worldwide.

They wear it proudly!
