Special Forces Association
The Special Forces Association is a non-profit veterans’ fraternal organization formed in 1964, at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, and is chartered in the State of North Carolina.
The purpose for which the Association was formed was to unite, fraternally, all men who are now or ever have been assigned to the United States Army Special Forces, to perpetuate Special Forces traditions. No person is barred from joining the association because of race, color, religion, sex, or political affiliation.
SFA Chapter 3 is the local chapter of the Special Forces Association. It was established in 2002 and is open to all current and former Special Forces Members in Thailand and world wide. Many of our members either travel a lot or are currently deployed Special Forces operators and in that sense we are a world wide chapter.
