Brief History of Special Operations
Each branch of the military has special operations unit to conduct unconventional
warfare. These specially trained units are sent out to complete tasks
that conventional forces could not complete. One of the most well-known
examples would be the identification, hunting, and elimination of terrorists.
Special operations units often operate at night in a low-profile manner,
using the elements of speed, surprise, and action against an unsuspecting target.
In 1987, the U.S. Department of Defense created the U.S. Special Operations
Command (USSOCOM), mandating a new four-star command to carry out assigned
missions by special operations units. USSOCOM has the following responsibilities
and authorities as decided by Congress:
- Develop special operations strategy, doctrine, and tactics
- Prepare and submit budget proposals for Special Operations Forces (SOF)
- Exercise authority, direction and control over special operations expenditures
- Train assigned forces
- Conduct specialized courses of instruction
- Validate requirements
- Establish requirement priorities
- Ensure interoperability of equipment and forces
- Formulate and submit intelligence support requirements
- Monitor SOF officers' promotions, assignments, retention, training,
and professional military education
- Ensure Special Operations Forces' combat readiness
- Monitor Special Operations Forces' preparedness to carry out assigned missions
- Develop and acquire special operations-peculiar equipment, materiel, supplies,
These responsibilities prove that anyone who aspires to serve in Special
Operations Forces must undergo extensive, grueling training and prove
that he or she is the best of the best.
