The U.S. Army Special Forces Green Berets are America’s elite warfare specialists. Candidates come from all across America, from both the military and civilian lives. The Special Forces Assessment and Selection (SFAS) has just two weeks to twist the candidates’ minds and destroy their bodies and find the very few who have what it takes to be a Green Beret. For those who try out, it’s an avalanche of chaos, stress, and doubt. Sixty percent of the candidates will not last the two weeks of testing — and passing this test is just for the opportunity to start real Green Beret training.
Get an unprecedented close-up look at the brutal two-weeks that separates the wannabes from the Berets when the two-hour special Two Weeks in Hell premieres Dec. 20 on Discovery Channel. — Elaine Bergstrom
