Air Force Special Ops Command (AFSOC) and JSOC

Air Force Special Ops Command (AFSOC) works with Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), a sub-unified command of the U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM). Led by a four-star general officer, USSOCOM is headquartered at MacDill Air Force Base (AFB) in Florida.

Understanding what is JSOC (Joint Special Operations Command) involves analyzing special operations force structure. There are three service component commands and one sub-unified command (JSOC) within United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM). The service component commands are for the U.S. Army, Navy, and Air Force. The JSOC sub-unified command is based at Ft. Bragg, North Carolina.

Army special forces personnel are also stationed at Ft. Bragg, but under the U.S. Army Special Operations Command (USASOC). U.S. Air Force (USAF) special operations personnel are based at Hurlburt Field, Florida under Air Force Special Ops Command (AFSOC). The Navy Special Warfare Command (NAVSPECWARCOM) is in Coronado, California.
