The 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta is The United States Army's premeir Counter-Terrorist unit. Delta along with Navy SEAL Team 6 (DEVGRU) and The Air Force's 24th STS form JSOC (Joint Special Operations Command.). Delta Force usually recruits primarily from the 75th Ranger Regiment, yet many Delta Operatives have earned their Green Beret and went through Ranger School before going through Delta screening. Delta Force has been rumored to have a drop out rate of 99.972%. (Example: If you gathered 100,000 fully grown, adult males only 28 could pass Delta screening.) Delta also cross-trains with The British Special Air Service and other Special Forces units of Allied countries.
Earn a Green Beret, get your Ranger tab, go through Delta Force Screening and maybe cross-train with The Grandfathers of Special Operations (The British Special Air Service.). How many people could do it?

But failed miserably the day before the Iranian EMbassy seige in the UK which the SAS dealt with superbly. Sadly Delta failed to secure the hostages' and many died. Now they train with the SAS as much as possible to hone their skills to a similar standard as that of the SAS.
Oh that guy was in delta.
I wish i had been
Well im the regiment (the SAS)

1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta (1st SFOD-D), popularly known as Delta Force, is a U.S. Army component of Joint Special Operations Command. It was formerly listed as the Combat Applications Group (CAG) by the Department of Defense. While 1st SFOD-D is administratively supported by USASOC, it falls under the operational control of the Joint Special Operations Command. Delta Force and its Navy counterpart, the Naval Special Warfare Development Group, are the United States military's primary counter-terrorism units. It is often referred to in the U.S. media as a Special Mission Unit.

Delta Force's primary tasks are counter-terrorism, direct action, and national intervention operations, although it is an extremely versatile group capable of conducting many types of clandestine missions, including, but not limited to, hostage rescues and raids.

The Central Intelligence Agency's highly secretive Special Activities Division (SAD) and more specifically its elite Special Operations Group (SOG) often works with – and recruits – operators from Delta Force.
The unit is under the organization of the US Army Special Operations Command (USASOC) but is controlled by the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC). Command of 1st SFOD-D is a Colonel's billet. Virtually all information about the unit is highly classified and details about specific missions or operations generally are not available publicly. A number of sources, including the book Inside Delta Force by Command Sergeant Major Eric L. Haney (ret.), suggest the unit's strength ranges from 800 to 1,000 personnel.

Real full name is 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta. They are in the U.S. army, however are open to all branches and recruit soldiers from every branch (even SEALs in the navy). They were inspired by British SAS (who they cross train with). And these guys are The Ultra-elite U.S. Special Ops soldiers. They have about 360 personnel. These guys are the Baddest, biggest, boldest, bravest, best, crazyest, deadliest, hardest, meanest, most accurate shooters (have to score 100% accuracy), most badass, most brutal, most elite, most extreme, most fearless, most hardcore, most powerful, most Professional ass kicking, roughest, scariest, smartest, toughest, top, and ultimate warriors in the world. They are the army's version of the navy's SEAL TEAM SIX, and in general about equally elite. You may have heard that these crazy bastards were involved in the Black Hawk Down insident. They also helped capture Saddam Hussein. Some people think that they should have been the ones who killed Bin Laden. These guys are such badass motherfuckers that a single 4 man group of Delta Force members could likely defend themselves against like hundreds of I.S.I.S. members. They are nearly impossible to hide from. I would be honored to serve in Delta Force.
Taliban company leader: Okay I got a few Platoons in my company ready to attack! Americans will die!

Delta Force guy 3 minutes later: HOOAH! I had destroyed that company of fuckers by myself! Now I hope their leader says hello to them down in hell after I kill him next! It sure kicks ass to be in Delta Force!

Random soldier: That dude over there cleared out a hotel with like dozens of Al-Qaeda members all by himself! He scored 100% accuracy on his shooting test! What an ass kicking machine!

Other Soldier: Guy must be in Delta Force

a branch of the us army (who are gun crazed pussies any way), what seppurates Delta force from the other pussies is that they are trained by the british SAS and are basicly their bitches, they are cannon fodder and dont relise that the 'role' they play is just to distract the enermy while the SAS do all the hard work!
SAS officer: 'right this what you have to do...' *lists plan*
Delta force solder: 'okay sir' *bum licks* *takes squad to the frount line*
SAS officer: 'good now that the suck ups have gone, lets get the real mission done!'
