U.S. Special Operations Command demonstration

The Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) includes exercises such as: rescue demonstrations, Black Hawk and Little Bird Helicopters, boats, Army Rangers, Navy SEAL team and snipers and Air Force Green Beret and Marine Corps Force Recon.

The command is headquartered at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida. SOCCENT FWD (formerly known as Combined Forces Special Operations Component Command) is located at Al Udeid in Qatar. The Command’s motto is Molon labe (Greek for “Come and take them”, reportedly said by King Leonidas I of Sparta before the Battle of Thermopylae in response to the Persian demand to surrender their weapons.)

In the initial stages of Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan, the formation’s commander was Rear Admiral Albert Calland. SOCCENT stood up Joint Special Operations Task Forces (JSOTFs). Beginning on 5 October 2001, Joint Special Operations Task Force-North (JSOTFN) was established under command of Col Frank Kisner at Karshi-Kanabad (K2), Uzbekistan, and the bombing of Afghanistan began on 7 October.
