I'll also point out that I'm confident that most of the people commenting are rear-echelon, non-serving, failed mainstream journalist types who have no special knowledge of the Special Forces or the historical time period being discussed, the height of the Vietnam War just before Tet, when the demand for men and material was high.

Just a personal anecdote, a dear departed friend of mine was in a Special Forces unit "deployed" to Cambodia. He didn't talk much about his experiences there, save only to offer vague anecdotes related to our wargaming. He was a Medic by training, but there was no indication on his DD form that he was anything but a Paratrooper. His DD form described a 003 designation and that was It, no unit of assignment or even Fort Bragg, whether he was a B-Team guy or not I don't know, but he got to clear the scum off the water of a river to get some water out when he drank it, and talked about their unit's pet rat.
