Abstract:

This report examines the extent to which Special Operations Forces SOF unit leaders, Command Language Program Managers CLPMs, and language office personnel know about the Special Operations Forces Language Office SOFLO, contact and receive support from the SOFLO, and find its support helpful. Respondents were first asked about their awareness of the SOFLO. Findings indicate that unit leaders in the SOF community are largely unaware that the United States Special Operations Command USSOCOM has a language office. For the most part, those who are aware of the SOFLO have neither contacted nor received support from the SOFLO. The respondents who have received support find it helpful, suggesting that the support that the SOFLO is currently providing is meeting the needs of current users. Implications and recommendations are discussed.
