JFK Special Warfare Center and School commander Maj. Gen. Patrick B. Roberson has announced that Green Beret, civil affairs and psychological operations training has and will continue despite the ongoing pandemic. Currently only certain shooting and combat diving courses have been canceled. A special forces selection class in April has been canceled, but one is ready to go in May. Some are claiming that continuing training is putting both the students and the instructors at risk, but Roberson has commented that training has continued because it is mission critical. “As of right now, no one in the SWCS enterprise has tested positive for COVID and we’re testing as often as we can,” he stated.
