But w, its very identity and role as a fighting force may be forever changed . . . </b> Until the war in Iraq, Special Forces were the military's counterinsurgency experts.

Award-winning journalist Kevin Maurer traveled with a Special Forces team in Afghanistan, finding out firsthand the inside story of the lives of this elite group of highly trained soldiers.
