Abstract:

During our review, our overall objective was to determine whether Special Operations Forces SOF are being used in a manner that best supports national security objectives. Specifically, we determined 1 whether there is general agreement on the priorities for the use of SOF by the regional commanders in chief CINC and SOF unit commanders 2 the pace of SOF operations and how SOF units senior officers and enlisted personnel view the impact of that pace of operations on readiness, morale, and retention and 3 in those cases where the pace of operations is perceived to be degrading SOF readiness, whether opportunities exist to reduce that pace.
