The First Special Services Force Website........

The First Special Service Force organization now has a .com address. They finally got it after the squatter who was sitting on the domain name failed to renew it........

First Special Service Force


This site is to keep the memory of the First Special Service Force, FSSF, Devil's Brigade, Black Devils, WWII Special Forces, alive. It also includes info on the FSSFA, First Special Service Force Association...........

I believe that SF is a 'calling' - not too different from the calling missionaries I know received. I knew instantly that it was for me, and that I would do all I could to achieve it. Most others I know in SF experienced something similar. If, as you say, you HAVE searched and read, and you do not KNOW if this is the path for you --- it is not....

SF is a calling and it requires commitment and dedication that the uninitiated will never understand......

This is outstanding. I had a relative who was part of this. I didn't know there was a website. Thanks!

The First Special Forces Group honors the First Special Service Force every year in early December with Menton Week and the Menton Day Ball.

One year (1999, I think) I had the honor of escorting the FSSF veterans and spouses from their hotel to the Group compound for the wreath laying ceremony. I was awed and humbled to be in the presence of these frail old men. I saw them when they were young and saved the world.
