U.S. Forces Command CSM Michael Grinston on inadequate training.
AFSOC Emerald Warrior 2015
Air Force Special Operations Command is hosting the annual Emerald Warrior exercise April 20 through May 1. This joint exercise provides pre-deployment training for special operations forces, conventional, interagency and partner nation forces in combat scenarios. Emerald Warrior is the Department of Defense’s only exercise that focuses on irregular warfare and hones special operations forces air and ground combat skills. This two-week exercise allows participants to further develop tactics, techniques and procedures and to strengthen relationships for future deployments. Missions flown during Emerald Warrior will help train our crews in a joint, realistic environment.
