Changes at Air Force Special Ops Command (AFSOC)

A recent Air Force Special Ops Command (AFSOC) ceremony at Duke Field in Florida marked the deactivation of the Air Force Special Operations Training Center (AFSOTC) and the activation of the Air Force Special Operations Air Warfare Center (AFSOAWC).

AFSOCAWC is modeled after the Special Air Warfare Center that stood down after the Vietnam War. By integrating the capabilities of various air units under one command, Air Force Special Ops (AFSOC) can consolidate operations more efficiently.

According to Air Force Special Ops Command (AFSOC), major military units that now fall under AFSOAWC include the U.S. Air Force (USAF) Special Operations School, the 551st SOS from Cannon Air Force Base in New Mexico, the 18th Flight Test Squadron, and the 745 SOS reserve unit.
