The Year in Special Operations: 2015-2016
This edition of The Year in Special Operations provides an in-depth look at special operations forces (SOF) today, and includes stand-alone features on SOCOM, the Theater Special Operations Commands, AFSOC, MARSOC, NAVSPECWARCOM, and USASOC, as well as international SOF.
This year's edition has a special focus on Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC), with interviews with AFSOC Commander Lt. Gen. Bradley Heithold, and the commanders of the 1st, 20th, 24th, 27th, 352nd, and 353rd Special Operations Wings. We highlight SOF programs, including the MC/AC-130J, and iconic SOF aircraft, as well as international SOF developments and the annual Fuerzas Comando international SOF competition.
And, as always we have special dedicated stories that look at SOF history, this year commemorating Task Force Normandy, the Ravens in Laos, and Operation V-2 to recover German missile technology.
