Just keeping everyone up to date. The annual review process has begun. Currently the SFSO Awards Manual, SFSO Training Manual are completed and awaiting final approval. The SFSO Standard Operating Procedures Manual is currently finishing up its draft version and will be shortly sent for review. The SFSO Uniform and Insignia Manual is currently in the beginning stages.
Team Manuals are still in the draft stages. The MACO Manual, SEALS Manual and Ranger Manual are still in draft phase, but are each about 90% completed. The Recon Manual and the Intel Manual are in the pre-stages and are about 25% complete.
As mentioned earlier on the SFSO FB page, the Team Manuals will be about the fictional aspects of each SFSO component. The SFSO Standard Operating Procedures, SFSO Awards Manual and the SFSO Uniform and Insignia Manual will cover “real” SFSO day to day operations etc.
The purpose of the Team Manuals being written as they are, is to begin the building foundation for the future (hopefully near future) SFSO Special Warfare Center and School. The proposed idea is creating our own Academy which will only contain courses and materials related to the required training for the grade certifications and additional skills certification. This project is only in the draft stages and a lot of details and work is going to be needed to make this a reality.
As soon as more updates become available, we will post them on this site.
