[Video] 1961 Army Special Forces: Bow & Arrow Vs. Firearms

Silent Warriors

This video from around 1961 highlights the bow and arrow skills of the “Silent Warriors” from the Army’s 19th Group Special Forces Group, based at Draper, Utah. This is before the Green Berets.

Penetrating Power Of The Arrow

This 2½ minute clip titled the “Silent Warriors” is from an episode of the US Army series “The Big Picture.” It discusses the potential superiority of the bow and arrow in certain tactical situations including:

  • accuracy and extremely powerful and penetrating strikes,
  • “swift silence” over long distances, and
  • not revealing position by muzzle flash or smoke.

A “penetration” challenge test against other small arms projectiles is set up at the firing range.

Training For Realistic Situations

[Video] Asking For Help At the Range

If You Don’t, Know Ask …

While at the indoor range shooting pistols and an AK, the Skinny Medic and his buddy Lou noticed an older gentleman practicing next to them.

The older guy fumbled about when loading, and when he shot … well, sometimes he hit the paper target.

Thanks For The Help

It was pretty obvious the man had never shot a pistol before. It appeared he had probably never held one. But SM and his buddy were reluctant to butt in.
