The National Special Forces Green Beret Memorial Park will be one of the most magnificent and inspirational memorials in the world to honor our elite U.S. Army Special Forces “Green Beret” Soldiers, past, present and future, and an inspiration to all Americans for future generations.
This national memorial tribute will portray the U.S. Army Special Forces “A-Team”, the Operational Detachment-Alpha (ODA), in 6 different iconic and contemporary action scenes with monumental, 8 foot tall bronze Soldiers and a total of 25 heroic scale bronze figures all together, reflecting the different aspects of the ODA mission.
A Medal of Honor center piece and pillar will also be created with the names of Special Forces Medal of Honor recipients, past, present and future.
Granite walls with bronze relief sculpture panels will be created portraying Special Forces Soldiers through different eras, highlighting Special Forces missions, values, culture, and history. Accent lighting will be added to create a dramatic effect.
Once complete, with each of the bronze sculpture sections brought together in epic scale, this iconic monument will convey the full essence of the Special Forces A-Team (ODA), and provide an enduring tribute to the elite Special Forces “Green Beret” Soldiers of every era, past, present and future and the legacy of the Special Forces Regiment.
The National Special Forces Green Beret Memorial is planned to be placed on public view, as a premier international tourist destination, near Fort Bragg in North Carolina. Fort Bragg is the home of the 1st Special Forces Command (Airborne) H.Q. , the U.S. Army John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School-U.S. Army Special Operations Center of Excellence and the U.S. Army Special Operations Command H.Q.
Contingent on funding, the first monument of The National Special Forces Green Beret Memorial is estimated to be unveiled in 2021, with the remainder of the memorial projected to be completed through a series of unveilings by 2026.
The premier unveiling events will be coordinated with all appropriate entities including the National Special Forces Association (SFA), the global Special Forces Community, other VIP’s and the local and major international media.
