If a service man is actaully in the service,is he allowed to say he is a green beret?

and exactly what is a green beret

Report as

A green beret is a member of the army special forces. Unless you have done the training and become one, saying you are a green beret is not only lying but disrespecting the people who have earned the title

No, that would violate the same rule as wearing medals that one did not earn

Happy_41. Being a Green Beret is not a classified item.

"Green Berets" are a special group of professionals. Originally they were the only ones allowed to wear a green beret. Proclaiming to be a Green Beret without actually being a member of the unit was against US Army Regulations. You could also find yourself in a world of hurt.

Saying you're in the SOF when you're not has been deemed legal but unethical. You can say it, but you might get your azz kicked. Google the "Stolen Valor Act" and you'll see that you have the freedom of speech, you can tell people that bullcrap story if you want to, but I don't recommend it.

I think I misunderstood your question. Are you asking if a Green Beret is allowed to tell people he's I'm the Special Forces? If that's what you meant then yes, they are.

Just hope you don't run into an actual Green Beret holder - if you prize keeping your tongue attached to your body.
