Global SOF Foundation

Chelsea and Stu spoke with Army SF COL (Ret) Bob Wilson, who commanded special operations forces in combat in Afghanistan and in complex missions across Africa, Central Asia, and Latin America. In his final assignment as an Army officer, Bob served in the White House as a director for counterterrorism in the National Security Council.

They discuss being in 7th Group in the 90s, the challenges presented by the austere environments of Africa, and why a light aviation capability like "Armed Overwatch" is important to current and future SOF.
