Joint Special Operations Command

The Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) is a component command of the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) and is charged to study special operations requirements and techniques to ensure interoperability and equipment standardization, plan and conduct special operations exercises and training, and develop Joint Special Operations Tactics. It was established in 1980. It is located at Pope Army Air Field and Fort Bragg in North Carolina, USA.

Officially JSOC is a joint-service "sub-unified command." A component command is service-specific, such as "Army Forces USSOCOM" or "Air Forces USCENTCOM."

JSOC publicly identified mission and its actual mission are two entirely different things. In reality it performs the most highly classified and difficult special operations missions, such as the recent job in Pakistan.
