Technical Question

So, I was wondering, here . . . Lacking much of a military background myself, I can't find the answer, and, you know . . . Okay, here's the deal.

Where did Col. (now Brig.) Jack O'Neal of Stargate Command learn all those nifty small-group tactical skills? I mean, the guy's AIR FORCE, for cryin' out loud. These guys fly planes, right? They don't do infantry stuff! I mean, sure, there's gotta be some AF component to our Special Forces, I suppose, but I don't know what they'd be. In the UK, they've got the SAS -- Special Air Services -- which is, I guess, an elite group outa the RAF.

But the guys wearing farts-n-darts? Anybody got a clue what the supposed background of the SG guys is supposed to be? Or is this another case of "we don't need no steenking research! We dooeng Sci Fi!"
