After what seemed to be an endless war, US special operations are expecting major changes coming this year. Special Operations Command has been recently open to discussions their imminent shift from counter-terror to near-peer competition. In addition, other changes are expected, including attracting and retaining women in every career field, focusing on preventing and responding to sexual assault and sexual harassment, and cracking down on extremism. “Humility, sharpened in combat losses, mission failures and imperfection. Humility that drives our sense of urgency to learn, to evolve, to come back stronger and even more committed to the missions our nation asks of us,” stated Rear Adm. Hugh Howard. This comes just one day after the announcement that SEAL units will be restructured.
