Green Beret JFK wreath laying ceremony

3d U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard) soldiers (right), render honors during the playing of taps at a wreath laying ceremony at the grave site of President John F. Kennedy in Arlington National Cemetery, Va., Nov. 17. The ceremony, hosted by the U.S. Army Special Forces Command (Airborne) and supported by The Old Guard, commemorated the 50th anniversary of the wearing of the Green Beret authorized by Kennedy in 1961. This important visit and the subsequent lasting partnership between JFK and the Special Forces ensure that these men will forever wear the Green Beret.
