Demand Will Increase for Special Ops Forces, Olson Says

By Jim Garamone
American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON, Aug. 8, 2011 - Special operations forces will become more important in the future, said Navy Adm. Eric T. Olson, who turned over the reins of U.S. Special Operations Command today.

Navy Adm. William H. McRaven succeeded Olson, who will retire from the Navy later this month.

Olson was the first Navy SEAL to become a four-star admiral, and he has been in charge of the command since July 2009. While special operations forces come from all services, they have a similar mindset, he said.

"It was with purpose and focus, agility and talent, tenacity and courage, celebration and mourning that our forces moved forward," he said during the transfer of command ceremony in Tampa, Fla. "Special operations forces by nature do not own mass or terrain. What they have is agility and speed, innovation and wisdom. They value knowledge over doctrine, experience over theory."

Special operations forces form a community of "self-starters, deep thinkers, imagineers, problem solvers, aggressive leaders and teammates to whom they can and often do trust with their lives," Olson said.

Special operations forces are a small part of the overall military, but they have become essential in two major lines of operation in Afghanistan – counterterrorism and the enduring local security force activities. Special operators also are key in training Afghan commandos and special forces.

"Their proven abilities to arrive unexpectedly, to kill those who plan to do us harm, to take precise action when required, to inspire their counterparts, all combine to make them a force in high demand," Olson said. "To be closely associated with such forces is a true privilege. To serve as their commander is the highest of honors."

The admiral said he has worked mostly with senior officers and senior noncommissioned officers during his time at the command, but he has tried to get out and speak with those on the ground at combat outposts and forward locations when possible. Roughly 85 percent of special operations deployments have been to Iraq and Afghanistan. "I'm proud to note that our ranks are solid, [and] the future is bright," he said.

Special operations forces have become the solution of choice for many of America's military challenges, Olson said.

"They punch above their weight, and they absorb blows with abnormal toughness and stamina," he said. "Our nation deserves and expects to have such a force that operates without much drama or fanfare, and whose greatest heroes are among the least acknowledged. This force is it. The yin and the yang – hunting enemies and bringing value to the people and places we go, are in close harmony."

This is a force that America can and should be intensely proud of, and it is a force that America needs to face the threats of the future, the admiral said.

"Osama bin Laden is dead, but al-Qaida version 2.0 is brewing," he added. "Conflicts over natural resources, borders, ideologies and theologies will continue. Cyber war looms. The lines between terrorism and crime will become less distinct. Global friction will intensify, and special operations forces will be necessary to turn down the heat."

Olson said he is concerned about some aspects of the force, including the "conventionalization" of special operations forces and a potential decrease in support from the services because of budget pressures. He has expressed concern about the effects of persistent warfare on personnel and their families.

 

 

 

 

Leaders Offer Condolences in Wake of Helicopter Crash

By Cheryl Pellerin
American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON, Aug. 6, 2011 - Senior U.S. leaders have extended condolences to the families of American and Afghan forces lost in an International Security Assistance Force helicopter crash in eastern Afghanistan earlier today.

Recovery operations are under way, ISAF Joint Command officials said in a statement today, noting that reports indicate there was enemy activity in the area.

The crash reportedly involved numerous casualties, but ISAF officials have yet to release further information.

"My thoughts and prayers go out to the families and loved ones of the Americans who were lost earlier today in Afghanistan," President Barack Obama said today in a statement.

"Their deaths are a reminder of the extraordinary sacrifices made by the men and women of our military and their families," the president continued, "including all who have served in Afghanistan.

"We also mourn the Afghans who died alongside our troops in pursuit of a more peaceful and hopeful future for their country," the president added.

Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta also offered his condolences in a statement today.

"I am deeply saddened by the loss of many outstanding Americans in uniform and of their Afghan counterparts earlier today in Afghanistan," he said. "Their courage was exemplary, as was their determination to make this a safer world for their countries and for their fellow citizens.

"We will stay the course to complete that mission, for which they and all who have served and lost their lives in Afghanistan have made the ultimate sacrifice," he continued.

"They and their families are in my thoughts, in my prayers and in my heart."

The United States will draw inspiration from the lives of those who were lost, Obama said, and continue the work of securing the country and standing up for the values they embodied.

"At this difficult hour, the president added, "all Americans are united in support of our men and women in uniform who serve so that we can live in freedom and security."
