BERET RSVP bonesforks  arrows38
  BFs

NOTE: This a SF Brotherhood Band and number one on our Hit Parade.  It is comprise of Patriotic Quiet Professionals (Rob, Jason, C. Robb, and John) who love music and the art of performing for all.  BoneS Fork is a rock-and-roll band formed by U.S. Army veterans who served in the Special Forces (the Green Berets) and in the Army's Special Operations Forces. Most are now retired from the Army after well over a century of combined service.

The band's moniker is taken from a creek in the back woods of North Carolina--an especially challenging, unforgiving bit of terrain that has menaced generations of aspiring Green Beret trainees or "candidates" as they are referred to during Special Forces Assessment and Selection.
