The Big Picture - Special Forces Adviser
You disliked this video. Thanks for the feedback!
Night has closed in over the Zagreb Mountains of northern Iran.
The sound of a plane is heard. Inside the plane Iranian Special Forces paratroopers prepare to jump into a maneuver area. There is a sense of urgency as last minute commands in Farsi are given by the lone American among them, a United State Army officer.
How this officer, Captain Paul Wineman, is trained in the military and language skills needed for his urgent task overseas is the subject of this week's documentary, "Special Forces Adviser."
THE BIG PICTURE camera crews followed Captain Wineman through training at Fort Bragg's Special Warfare School, the Army Language School at Monterey, California, and on to Iran.
Here is a revealing insight into the way the Army trains men for special missions... and few are as special as those of a Special Forces Adviser.
