    FORT CARSON, Co. – 10th Special Forces Group (Airborne) hosted a reunion last Friday for prior 10th Group veterans who served in Germany during the Cold War. The event was designed to give former Green Berets a chance to come together, reflect on the history of 10th SFG (A), and see how the unit has developed.
    “It’s important to see what’s changed,” says Alan McCray, a former communications sergeant with 10th SFG (A). “It’s our lineage and our history. It’s like coming back home again.”
    Reunion participants got the chance to see different parts of the compound, including the Group Headquarters, Regimental Mess, and Dive Locker. They also had the chance to talk to current Green Berets and Paratroopers, and see how 10th Group’s focus has evolved to accomplish its current mission.
    Though many aspects of the unit have changed over the years, 10th Group’s Green Berets continue to be professional warriors, creative problem solvers, and masters of the partnered approach. For attendees of the reunion, having the chance to reflect on these aspects of a Green Beret is a chance to reflect on themselves.
    “With anything in the military, it’s important to understand where your organization originated from, and understand how the organization has changed over time but continues to defeat the current threat,” said 10th Group’s S3 Operations Sergeant Major. “Esprit de Corps is at the heart of what we do, and it comes from the history of an organization. Every unit carries its history and its colors, and that’s to maintain tradition and understand where the unit’s been and where it’s going.”
    The reunion provided an opportunity for the retirees to come back together after years of being apart. They shared stories and knowledge from the time they served, and found pride in what they did and what 10th Group Soldiers are currently doing.
    “They’re proud of their history, they’re proud of the time they served and whatever fight was going on at their time,” said the Sergeant Major. “Someday when I come back it’ll be the same. Pride is always a big piece of that. They’re really proud to see the next generation carrying their torch.”
