No, I am not talking about the Commando movie! Nor am I referring to the zillions of commando video games which haunt every computer store in every country. I am talking about the real live commandos – the real action heroes who by sheer bravery and grit accomplish many feats – exterminate enemies and make our nations a safer place to live.
Everyone would love to know the names of these real life heroes but this is not possible. US President Jon F. Kennedy declared that on joining the elite commando unit of the army, the soldier would cease to exist by his name. All papers, honour rolls and credentials would refer to the soldier by a code name. And on top of that, a commando is never identified on sole account. He is always tied to his commando unit. Thus, knowing the names of individual commandos is a tough proposition. It is easier to distinguish commando units by the specific country they serve.
The Belgium Commando
The Belgium commando unit is perhaps the toughest in the world. These commandos are inducted early into the unit. They undergo vigorous training in guerrilla warfare. The Belgium commando unit is trained in all means of combat ranging from physical hand to hand, eye to hand and legs. The Belgium commando unit wears special uniform only when assigned to foreign countries on special missions. It has an ethic code of loyalty and trust which serves the Belgium commandos well on the country borders.
Probably the most fearsome and skilled commando unit in the world! The US commando unit has always been on the move serving its own country and fighting against terrorism in foreign lands. The US commandos are also skillful management leaders donning leadership roles. The commonly used code names include – Eagle, Hawk, Blue and Swift. US Commandos are trained to be skillful marksmen to be able to survive in no man land with minimal refreshment. US commandos are skilled in bioterrorism, nuclear weaponry and sophisticated night bombing schedules. The US commando unit works with Navy SEALs and the Green Beret to advance US army philosophy.
The Israeli Commando
Formed after World War II, the Israeli commando unit works closely with Israeli intelligence forces of Mossad to curb anti terrorist acts. Israeli commando units employ women to watch and maintain over homeland. The commandos are fast in action with agility and nimbleness matching those of the wild cheetah. They move about disguised detecting any untoward signs. Israeli commandos do not hesitate to use tactics of guerilla ware fare, bio terrorism, sophisticated weaponry and nuclear armoury to achieve their ends.
The Indian Commando
The Indian commando unit is referred to as the best in Asia. The Indian commando undergoes vigorous training to patrol the borders. The Indian commando units are skilled in the art of guerilla warfare and sophisticated weaponry. Indian commandos go by their code names and are often sent to Israel to undergo special ammunition training camps for more than a month.To be a commando is a matter of pride and courage but it demands a price of invisibility where no one knows your true identity. Anonymity has to be the second name for a commando.
