CREATED BY Department of Defense. Department of the Army. Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations. U.S. Army Audiovisual Center.

The original release sheet reads: "De Oppresso Liber" -- To liberate from oppression. This is both the motto and the avowed purpose of the Army's Special Forces. In this issue, THE BIG PICTURE will see in action the men of the 19th Special Forces Group, 1st Special Forces. Training in judo, demolitions, and communications ...scaling a sheer cliff, or parachuting into unknown terrain in the dead of night...all are part of the job to the men of this crack unit of The Utah National Guard. Each man, as you'd expect, can demonstrate his skill with firearms - both our own, and those of other nations - but an added measure of silent striking power comes into play when guardsmen demonstrate the amazing capabilities of an unusual item of equipment: the historical hunting bow. The part played by a modern version of this ancient weapon - in a highly exciting guerrilla mission - forms the climax of "Silent Warriors." FOR MORE INFORMATION
