Maj. Gen. Kurt Sonntag has watched and listened to the construction work outside his Fort Bragg office for as long as he has been in command of the John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School.
After years of efforts from past SWCS leaders, the schoolhouse that trains the nation’s Special Forces, Civil Affairs and Psychological Operations soldiers is undertaking a long-overdue transformation.
That’s no accident, Sonntag said. Army special operations is competing with colleges and universities for the nation’s best. And to compete, SWCS must upgrade its facilities as well as the way it teaches and trains soldiers across the special operations enterprise.
