Why Ohio’s Green Berets join Chapter 45

Members expand their network of friends by meeting new chapter members.  SF guys who move to Ohio or neighboring states, recently retire from or end their active military service, and members of the Ohio National Guard’s B/2/19th Special Forces Group are constantly adding new blood to the chapter. 

Seeing your old buddies is fun, but making new friends with Green Berets with other experiences is a great opportunity and a good time.  It’s a rewarding opportunity because you will find other guys who think the way you do and shared the same gauntlet of selection, training, unit experiences, deployments, and, for many, combat.

We are a local SF Association Chapter in Ohio with meetings and events across the state. Join us and stay connected to your Special Forces Community. Please call or email one of the Points of Contact listed below.
