I think it depends where you're from man. The average American doesn't know the difference between a Dutch Marine and a British Royal Marine. People hear military and it's just kind of a check in the box about working hard, being driven, etc. You still need to have the goods in terms of technical skills. At least that's been my experience. I'd certainly put the term special forces on your resume and perhaps an American equivalent unit. Hope this helps.

I'm from one of the closets Allies of the US armed forces. Although I haven't had combined training experience w the US yet, my superiors have been in combined training exercises with the US Delta Force.

I probably shouldn't disclose the name of my unit but yeah haha

It's only going to help you. Look at vet clubs at any MBA or undergrad and there's always some South Korean soldiers, IDF, etc. Even though you're from a different country, you'd have much more in common with a vet at a bank than they would have with most of their colleagues. If someone from an ally military reached out to me, I'd talk to them. You are probably still counted as diversity as well.
