The United States Army Special Operations Command and the 1st Special Forces Command have jointly decided to disband the Crisis Response Force companies due to underutilization and a lack of operators. CRF specializes in direct action, counterterrorism, and hostage rescue missions, with each SF group having their own CRF company. This decision goes hand in hand with the recent turn of attention from counterterrorism to focus on possible conflicts created by Russia and China. “The CRF hasn’t been gainfully employed since the end of 2011, and other than that, the National Mission Force [Joint Special Operations Command] can get there just as fast,” a CRF operator commented to SOFREP.
