Inside the Green Berets : the first thirty years, a history of the U.S. Army Special Forces by Charles M Simpson( Book )

4 editions published between 1983 and 1984 in English and held by 834 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based in part on the unpublished ms. of Col. Robert B. Rheault, this book presents the history of the first thirty years of the Green Berets. The author relates the entire available story starting with the training of the 10th Special Forces at Fort Bragg, and later at Bad Tolz in Bavaria. The ability of these men to operate as advisors in foreign countries, helping to train other armies, is dependent on their very special knowledge of the people, their customs, language, and the terrain. Guerrilla warfare, insurgency, counterinsurgency, all come within the circle of their operations. President John F. Kennedy gave a powerful impetus to the growth of SF, but they really came into prominence during the Vietnam War. Their Civic Action programs ("Winning the hearts and the minds of the people") and "Psy Ops" became well known. They maintained camps in the far-flung Vietnamese provinces among the Katu and the Bru, in Cambodia, with the Montagnards, the Hoa Hao and the Cao Dai religious groups. Colonel Simpson was personally responsible for increasing the strength of the Mobile Strike Forces composed of Vietnamese nationals from 1,000 to 10,000 men. The main function of these Mike Forces was to come to the aid of besieged fighting units, and this they did more quickly and effectively than any regular army unit. Simpson contends, in fact, that a more effective use of Mike Forces might have made the U.S. combat troops unnecessary

"A State-Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Nutrient Innovations Task Group concluded in a 2009 report (State -- EPA Nutrient Innovations Task Group, 2009) that 'continuing the status quo at the national, state, and local levels and relying upon our current practices and control strategies will not support a positive public health and environmental outcome.' A systems approach that integrates watershed load reduction programs with enhanced nutrient processing in coastal systems may prove more effective at restoring ecosystem services at less cost than load reduction programs alone. Shellfish aquaculture, which has shown promise in reducing eutrophication impacts by taking up nutrients from the water, is an alternative method that might be used together with land-based methods. Eutrophication is among the most serious threats worldwide to the function and services supported by coastal ecosystems...Many water bodies worldwide have experienced nutrient-related water-quality degradations with consequent impacts, such as hypoxic bottom waters and loss of valuable habitats, with cascading impacts on fisheries...Concern about these conditions has led to legislation that requires monitoring, assessment and implementation of management measures to reverse coastal eutrophication in places where degradation is observed (e.g. US Clean Water Act, EU Water Framework Directive). Most of these management measures focus on reductions of land-based sources of nutrients, such as fertilizer application and wastewater treatment plant discharges, and in some cases these measures have been successful. There is increasing recognition that returns on investment diminish with increased stringency in both point and non-point source controls, that additional management will result in incrementally smaller reductions in nutrient loads, and that at some point further reductions are not cost-effective...This is particularly the case for non-point sources, where control is difficult technically, but is also a problem for point sources once nutrients are reduced to concentrations at the limit of technological feasibility. Another argument for finding alternate management measures is highlighted by the different (and unpredictable) recovery paths that can occur, in contrast to a management model based on the presumption that the recovery path is the reverse of the impact path, and that both are linear ...Historical alterations in habitat quality, food webs, and community structure in coastal systems can alter nutrient processing, thus modifying the ecosystem response to reduced nutrient loads...This modification may be due to a regime shift that results in an altered recovery trajectory, and/or a moving baseline, due to climate change for instance"--Introduction
