Captains move from their initial assignments directly to Fort Bragg, which saves them and their family the inconvenience of a relatively short PCS move to Fort Benning.

Invest in Human Capital 2. Once viewed as separate and isolated operations, the operating environment may change rapidly, resulting in what may begin as a foreign internal defense operation transitioning to a UW operation, or vice versa, as conditions change in the country due to time or disruptive events such as coups d’etats. The establishment of a 7th Warfighting Function addresses the related tasks and systems that influence the behaviors of a people friendly, neutral, adversarysecurity forces and governments and enables the prioritization and synchronization of efforts to achieve strategic effects.

This simple comparison using traditional IPB techniques reinforces the importance of maps in the land domain and demonstrates the need for similar maps in the human domain. The emergence of the Human Domain demands the armed forces and other U. Very capable adversaries will continue to challenge U. ARSOF will leverage emerging technology to continue to develop innovative, low-visibility means and when required, non-attributable materiel solutions, that enable new means for ARSOF to discriminately engage the most sensitive targets around the globe.

Our regionally expert forces will be called upon to provide continuous, proactive and responsive support to their respective joint-force commands — whether in country or deployed. It is my contention that the new career course model is ultimately detrimental to the Special Forces Regiment.

While that is true, it is balanced by gaining some of the best training the Army has to afsof. Combat in the 21st century, however, involves not only geographical terrain but also the human domain to a larger and arguably more important extent. From a tactical perspective, MCCC graduates understand how the combined arms fight works and how afsof, mechanized, and stryker units are employed and their effects integrated in offense, defense, and stability operations.


This begs the question, how is this done? InARSOF provide joint-force commanders scalable nodes, with unmatched levels of tactical skill and language and cultural expertise, which establish persistent and distributed networks that provide the nation precise and nuanced asymmetric capability.

CPT Richmond is speaking truth to power.

The new AOC relies on IOPE, the process to preset a theater of operations and provide future operational forces maximum understanding of the OE prior to committing forces.

The conduct of hostage rescue or other unilateral sensitive operations requires special airlift, intelligence and support assets that utilize cutting-edge technologies to ensure success. Unfortunately, human domain maps do not exist in intelligence shops. That’s why asof map of our way 2022 is so important.

Behavioral health is a necessary and integral aspect of overall Soldier fitness. Bolstering anyone can do. Government Printing Office, SOF must improve its capability to design and plan long-duration, low-visibility, SOF-centric contributions to campaigns that bridge tactical SOF capability to strategic objectives. With the knowledge gleaned from this research and the supporting SNA analytics, what was once thought of as a poor situation for a UW campaign now has promise and potential.

To me, this topic is all gain. ARSOF is a blueprint for change. While that cannot change, we are not content to maintain the status quo, because failure is not an option. Not so much at SWCS. Instead of taking a one-size-fits-all approach, we must equip our formations to meet the specific needs of their assigned missions and area of operations, especially our regionally aligned special warfare units.

Mastery of the Cyber Domain will require Army Special Operations to have training in cyber operations, knowledge of supporting systems and organizations and the ability to utilize cyberspace to enable operations while mitigating the inherent security risks.

Additionally, our instruction is some of the best. Humanitarian assistance provided by US forces is limited in scope and duration. The Army is globally engaged and regionally responsive; it is an indispensable partner and provider of a full range of capabilities to combatant commanders in a joint, interagency, intergovernmental and multi-national environment.

Programs conducted to relieve or reduce the results of natural or man made disasters or other endemic conditions such as human pain, disease, hunger, or privation that might present a serious threat to life or that can result in great damage to or loss of property. These efforts were defeated due to bureaucracy and the time and effort these kinds of changes take- but, mostly it was because of the reality of the pipeline interruptions this would cause- the war needs bodies and we just can’t take the pain in the short-term for the long-term gain this would provide Victory favors those most prepared; therefore it is imperative that the United States finds itself arsog the most prepared for 21st century warfare.


ARSOF tactical elements will have an unprecedented level of organic and tactical exploitation of national capability, regardless of the austerity or sensitivity of their environments. By improving interdependence, we enabled seamless and consistent application of combat power across the full range of military operations.

Executed unilaterally or collaboratively, surgical strike extends operational reach and influence by engaging global targets discriminately and precisely. I would like to help the comparison by recognizing what is lost but developing what is gained. We cannot win the current fight without preserving the force and its 0222. The assistance provided is designed to supplement or complement the efforts of the host nation civil authorities or agencies that may have the primary responsibility for providing humanitarian assistance.

That was what Zrsof meant by “tactics. It also requires an advanced understanding of adversaries and how they are evolving in an effort to gain a position of advantage.

These states will be more capable and want more resources, but still will be unable to match U. The future operating environment requires non-overt, clandestine, scalable Soldier systems.

Key knowledge, skills and attributes for employment of surgical strike include the execution of robust intelligence fusion, leveraging high-tech collection systems, management of arsoff targeting cycles and the ability to discriminate and engage threat targets with minimal collateral damage.
