In the post-9/11 security environment, the use of U.S. Special Operations Forces has increased considerably. Special Operators’ combination of unique skills made them adept at combating terrorism and insurgency over the past ten years. However, as the U.S. withdraws from Afghanistan and attempts to refocus its national security objectives, the SOF community intends to return emphasis on its “indirect” missions – those that strive to prevent conflict rather than engage in it. By working “by, with, and through” America’s partner nations, performing training exercises and humanitarian missions, and continuing to build relationships, our “Quiet Professionals” can provide critical components of national security. Join us for a discussion on the Special Operations Forces community, how they can help preserve national security into the future, and how the U.S. can continue to support their actions.
