Hello Julie and welcome. I know of 2 different poster. The closest to your description is this one:
http://www.amazon.com/GREEN-BERETS-ORIGINAL-ONE-SHEET-POSTER/dp/B009H8YS22
Looking at the other prices for poster from the same store i find the price realistic. It should be rare indeed and war movie poster are usually popular meaning there is not many on the market as collector keep them.

It does not have "night vision" as i understand the term (the technology was not even used at the time), perhaps you wanted to say "fish eye".

It seem to be a 2 colors (3 with white) cheaper version of the main posters. It does not mean that it worth less as rarity is a big factor. You can see the cheap factor at work with the stars name, having the third cramped at the bottom of the poster instead of bing in the same row. The real art have lot more colors:

I would contact the guy i mentioned earlier and see what he think the poster is worth. Usually cheaper version of posters always got produced in similar ratio from movie to movie so he may have a good idea of the price for that one.
