The Joint Special Operations Command was established to bring
continuity and organization to the various special operations
units across the services that performed direct action and
counter-terrorism missions. The various units of JSOC are
assigned special missions and regional areas to operate in
across the globe. Some of those units are tasked with sending
forward an 'expeditionary targeting force'.
