Joint Special Operations
Command (JSOC)

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'.
