The US Army's Special Forces, aka Green Berets, can trace its lineage back to WWII and has spent every day since at the forefront of our nation’s conflicts. From Korea and Vietnam to Desert Storm, Iraq, Afghanistan, and a whole list of others not recorded in history books, our Green Berets have defended and laid down their lives for our freedom.
In recent conflicts, the Green Berets have accepted an unprecedented number of casualties. These casualties come at a greater a cost than can be seen by the naked eye. Our Green Berets are not only taking physical damage, they are experiencing mental distress in extraordinary quantities. PTSD is such common place now that it is almost a given that a member of the Special Operations Forces will experience it. Suicide rates among the Special Operations community are almost twice the military average.
So, what are we doing about it? Green Beret Racing was founded with one goal in mind, to help members of the Special Operations Forces find meaningful, fulfilling outlets outside of the regiment. We are working to create a community where you look forward to the alarm clock. A place where you can find your adrenaline fix, be a part of a team, and ultimately find the drive and purpose that takes you beyond the bottle calling your name or the nightmares that keep you awake at night.
Green Beret Racing is more than a few guys getting together to go fast, look cool, and invent new curse words when working on our machines. We invest in current and former members of the U.S. Army's Special Forces Regiment and their desires to pursue competition in meaningful, exciting, and rewarding ways. Our programs directly fight the suicide epidemic in the military by removing monetary barriers while placing Green Berets into groups of like minded people with similar interests that push them to grow and heal.
Live fast. Live through it. -GBR
