Only two Air Force units, the 6th Special Operations Squadron was tasked with teaching foreign air forces how to employ light aircraft to combat insurgents, terrorists, and other dangers in their own nations. 


Lt. Col. Sean Williams, commander of the 6th SOS, stated at the event on Thursday, “The unit had a major influence around the world as one of the very few units to complete this mission.” Today is a milestone rather than a destination or the conclusion of a given endeavor. The unit closures take place when the broader Air Force pivots to abandon insurgent operations and invests a considerable portion of its resources in getting ready for the likelihood of a major conventional conflict.

Justin Prewitt stated on the Air Force Special Warfare veteran-run podcast Ones Ready that CAAs and Green Berets frequently work side by side downrange.
