SOCEUR has elected to create a standing forward based SOF headquarters on a rotational basis in Albania. The hope is to increase interoperability with our Albanian partners as well as to provide important access to transportation hubs in the Balkans and logistical flexibility. The US-Albanian military relationship is strong and Albania’s support of NATO remains unwavering. “The ability to rapidly move and train within the Balkans, in close coordination with other allied and partner forces, made Albania the best location for this effort,” said Major General David H. Tabor, Commander of Special Operations Command Europe.
