    Well the "Green Berets" are basically like the Peace Corps except with guns and elite military training. They're the *perfect* thing you can use to bother/offend hippie types.

    I'm surprised Anthony Herbert didn't make the list.

    Herbert was a decorated soldier, but he has some bullshit in his autobiography "Soldier". He claims that he visited vietnam to engage in SOG type missions when then Col John Singlaub was running the Phoenix program. At the time Singlaub was not in Vietnam, and 2) Singlaub never lead the Phoenix program. Some of Herbert's stories were later picked up by Frank Dux, and repeated in his own book "The Secret Man".

    Sure, but being a bullshitter doesn't make his verified military achievements any less impressive.

    I didn't know he had inspired Frank Dux's lies, but it doesn't surprise me.
