Exercise readies SOF for threats abroad

USASOC News Service, April 20, 2015

FORT BRAGG, N.C.- As our government prepares forces for an unprecedented domestic “multi-state” exercise called Jade Helm 15, it leaves many citizens wondering what they can expect during the July 15th-Sept 15th training exercise.

In a press release from USASOC Public Affairs we can gather that the USASOC has periodically conducted these type of exercises to practice core special warfare tasks, which help protect our nation against foreign enemies.

In this particular press release the USASOC states that training exercises such as these are not unique to the military, but the size and scope of Jade Helm sets it apart from any to date.  They stressed the need to stay ahead of the environmental challenges faced overseas, and training will take place across the following states: Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Mississippi, Louisiana and Florida.

The release reveals that the exercises will be conducted on private and public land with permissions from the landowners as well as state and local authorities.  They have assured that the “public can expect nothing much different from their day-to-day activities since much of the exercises will be conducted in remote areas.”

USASOC offers that there will be benefits to local communities through economic gains in local fuel and food sales as well as hotel lodging (although the majority of the exercises will be conducted in remote areas).

This exercise is being billed as a routine training program to maintain a high level of readiness for ARSOF since they must be ready to support potential missions anywhere in the world, as well as “to protect our country from foreign invasion”.

We anxiously await their end of summer exercises to see how these events unfold on and off camera.
