Abstract : Special Operations Forces provide the operational commander with the flexibility to respond to a multitude of contingencies across the spectrum of armed conflict. The operational CinC must also ensure that his subordinate staff is attuned to the benefits of integrating SOF with conventional forces. He and his staff must also never forget that the level of training of SOF personnel is superior, and that SOF is a formidable force multiplier particularly in the areas of ---Direct Action, Psychological Operations, and Civil Affairs.
