How U.S. spec ops troops did in shooting, tactical competition with Latin American countries | Military Times

For the past 15 years, small groups of special operations troops from the United States and Latin America have met each year for a tactical competition while their senior leaders traded lessons learned and developed better ways to provide security, counter narcotics trafficking and handle disaster response across U.S. Special Operations Command-South.

Military Times spoke recently with the U.S. director of the Fuerzas Comando competition about what the event provides in tactical, operational and strategic interests.

U.S. Army Lt. Col. Kevin Key is the exercise director. This was his first year overseeing the event, which wrapped up in late June but he has spent a decade on Army special operations assignments, predominantly serving with 7th Special Forces Group, which has a geographic focus on South and Central America.
