Any insight would be most valuable.

1.) 30 y/o, white male. 7.5 years WE in US Army Special Forces (Green Berets); multiple combat tours, awards, decorations, etc.

2.) GRE + 164V/161M/5.5 AE (=710GMAT?)

3) 3.28ugpa @ Cornell; Major in English.
Also, I have a handful of postgrad credits in writing courses @ UC Berkeley & UCLA Extensions.
And I worked full-time throughout undergrad.

4) 2 Combat Deployments to Afghanistan; multiple deployments to other locations. Consistently promoted ahead of peers.

6) Target schools = HBS, SBS, Yale SOM & Sloan.

Is my GPA going to be a big problem? Also, should I explain why I opted for the GRE rather than the GMAT? Thanks in advance for the help.

You are in very fine shape, my good sir.
Seven years in Army, Special Forces (with, I assume good stories and great leadership), and a very good GRE.
Don't even think twice about your GPA (nor is it so low that you need to explain it away), and as long as the school accepts the GRE, you don't need to explain that either.
Save your word space for your more interesting stories.

And good luck to you,
