The Year in Special Operations: 2013-2014 I Photos

Special operators as well as industry leaders from around the globe received their copies of The Year in Special Operations: 2013-2014 at the 2013 Special Operations Forces Industry Conference (SOFIC). You can now read what these special operators and industry leaders read by ordering a copy or by viewing the digital flip-book edition.

The Year in Special Operations is a publication totally dedicated to the “quiet professionals” – the airmen, Marines, sailors, and soldiers engaged in what the U.S. military terms “unconventional warfare.” The photos of U.S. and international special operators above are ones that didn’t make it into our publication due to space limitations, but still showcase some of the great content you will find when you pick up this issue. Within The Year in Special Operations 2013-2014 you will find:

  • Interviews with Maj. Gen. Mark A. Clark, Rear Adm. Sean A. Pybus, and Command Sgt. Maj. Chris Faris
  • The evolution of the Minigun; SOF ground vehicles
  • Anniversaries: AFSOC; Task Force Ranger; Operation Urgent Fury; Operation Praying Mantis

And much more.
