Mission DetailsInformation Warfare:
The use of electronic warfare, computer network operations, psychological operations, and military deception to influence, disrupt, corrupt, or usurp the oppositions decision making while protecting our own.
Passing information to the opposition to influence their emotions, motives, reasoning, and ultimately their behavior. The purpose of psychological operations is to fool the opposition into doing what military commanders want them to. Also called PSYOP.
Special Forces are often deployed to preclude, preempt and resolve terrorist incidents abroad. They prevent, deter and respond to terrorist activities and train other nations' military in the basics of fighting terrorism.
Direct Action missions are short duration strikes that are used when Special Forces want to seize, capture, recover or destroy enemy weapons and information or recover designated personnel or material.
Foreign Internal Defense:
This mission is used to organize, assist and train the military and national defense forces of foreign governments to protect their citizens from aggressors.
Special Reconnaissance missions generally take place before any movement by our military. Without that vital information, U.S. Army Soldiers might be caught off guard and unprepared when entering enemy territory.
Special Forces have long employed the use of Unconventional Warfare (UW), a.k.a. guerilla warfare, to train, equip, advise and assist forces in enemy-held or controlled territory.
PRISON CAMP RAID
Are you Special Forces material? Can you make the right decisions under pressure?
To join the military, one of the first challenges you will have is to show that you have some basic knowledge and skills by scoring well on the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB). The ASVAB is made up of several verbal, math, and technical tests. You will need a strong combined score to be considered for a special operations MOS, but while the military can get you into peak physical performance, YOU need to train your mind by using the tools provided in our ASVAB section.
