Special Ops in Black and White
Some interservice rivalries are well known. One of the lesser known rivalries is between the "white" special forces, and the "black" special forces. The former train foreign militaries and win hearts and minds. The later kill people and blow things up. Usually, the "black" special forces win the budget battles, and the senior military leaders in the Special Operations Command (SOCOM) have their roots in that part of the force.
