Default Ussocom

The United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) is a multil-service Joint Unified Command of Special Operations Forces (SOF) including Army Special Forces, Rangers, Navy Seals, etc. Definitely a tough crew. This is a special week for the Armed Forces, as the Marines' birthday is Nov 10, and Veterans Day is Nov 11.

FYI: USSOCOM also has a parachute team.

Great shot. You've really caught the action.

Takes me back...... 13 years since I jumped out of a perfectly good plane.

Great photo Steven! Unlike Ken I've never jumped from a perfectly good airplane, but I understand why those who do ..... doit.

Absolutely a wonderful shot, dramatic. I would love to have that flag for my flagpole but I would have to double the height of the pole : )

Well Ken, it may have been 13 years since you jumped out of a plane, but you are still ahead of me, because I have never had the nerve to do that!!
