Remembering the famed Director Frank Capras ground breaking World War II film series, entitled Why We Fight, this new program is an original and innovative documentary produced for the United States Army Special Forces by Frank Capra Jr. and Cape Fear Filmworks, in association with EUE Screen Gems Studios. It was directed by filmmaker Mark Benjamin.
One of the primary goals for the video project is to educate audiences about U.S. Army Special Forces roles in current and future fights. For over 50 years, U.S. Army Special Forces have conducted missions in support of the indirect approach, such as unconventional warfare and foreign internal defense. While Army Special Forces have also performed other core missions, such as direct action and special reconnaissance, it is clearly the force of choice to conduct unconventional warfare and foreign internal defense due to it mastery of those missions as indicated by its experience.
In this film, with conviction and clarity, Green Berets tell the audience in their own words, Why We Fight Now, in The Global War on Terror.
