On October 12, 1961, President Kennedy made a trip to the United States Special Warfare Center and School where he met with Brigadier General Yarborough who was wearing the Green Beret against the wishes of some in the Army Chain of Command.
Seeing the General JFK asked “Those are nice. How do you like the Green Beret?" Yarborough replied, "They're fine, Sir. We've wanted them a long time."
Soon after the meeting President Kennedy authorized the “Green Beret” as the official headgear for US Army Special Forces which is how members of The Regiment have been called since.
On April 11, 1962 JFK published an official White House Memorandum to the US Army stating in part “The Green Beret is again becoming a symbol of excellence, a badge of courage, a mark of distinction in the fight for freedom.

The DEL 20oz Tumbler is a must for those on the road or trail who need something lightweight, rugged and absolutely functional.
This is my family's favorite morning beverage. It arrives oily and smokey fresh from the roaster, and within a few days it's steaming in your cup. No enormous corporate roaster could or would care this much about freshness. And the cause it supports is also close to our hearts, so it's an easier decision to drink it every day. I can't imagine you would be disappointed.
The coffee, absolutely fantastic, a bold rich flavor that lasts. Better yet, I'm helping a very important charity. I'm getting more as gifts for special Veterans!!!
I purchased a pound of each blend they offered and wow, the coffee was wonderful. The flavors came through and so much better than other premium brands I have purchased or subscribed to in the past. Looking forward to setting up the subscription and enjoying this as my morning and relaxation routine. Thank you for what you have done and for such a wonderful tasting coffee.
