Conventional Forces and Special Operations Forces: Interoperability and Interdependence

October 1, 2014

The history of the war in Afghanistan will be written in years to come. However, there are immediate lessons that should be captured, as they are not only applicable to the remaining time in Afghanistan but will be applicable to future operations as well.

Although not unique, my background set the conditions for me to understand, appreciate and seek the synergy of all entities where disparate contributors (individuals and units) complement one another to achieve unity of effort and effects rather than compete with one another to get credit for real or perceived effects achieved.
