    Green Berets with 1st Special Forces Group (Airborne) practices self-recovery from a glacial crevasse during Valor United 20, an arctic warfare training exercise in Seward, Alaska. During the September 2020 exercise, Special Forces and conventional soldiers alike developed their patrolling and survival skills in some of the most unforgiving terrain in the U.S. Key focus areas for the training were arctic, alpine and glacier movement, crevasse rescue, and long-range high-frequency communications. In addition to training, the 1st SFG (A) team assisted 212th Rescue Squadron with wilderness search and rescue operations.
