Second cirle : I never read that police's unit RAID is part of COS, and it seems highly unlikely because it's a Police Nationale unit and not a Gendarmerie Nationale. To make a comparison, FBI Hostage Rescue Team is not part of SOCOM. Well, it's difficult to be relevant abour Gendarmerie because USA nor GB have such " army "... Well I remove and add others units, according to [1] Rob1bureau 15:45, 5 April 2006 (UTC)



The section referencing the "Purple Heart" award is wrong. The Purple Heart is not the "highest honor," it is awarded for being wounded or killed in action. The Medal of Honor is the US military's highest award. — Preceding unsigned comment added by JollyRoger9 (talkcontribs) 04:36, 19 May 2013 (UTC)

I think all this article should be re-written : officially, there never had been any first, second or even third circle. There are : - Units under the command of the COS (Special Forces) - Units not under the command of the COS (Not Special Forces)

The 17ème régiment de Génie parachutiste is not under the command of the COS, neither is the GIGN. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Pelomar (talkcontribs) 16:25, 10 October 2009 (UTC)

Your illustation image for the COS is not right. This is the BFST patch (army part of COS). The COS symbol is a crossbow. Can find it on the net.
