SOC was called to lead the way to assist the Department of State, when the U.S. government re-established our nation’s diplomatic presence in a significantly volatile region in Africa. SOC spearheaded these efforts by providing mobile and static security operations, and a fully operational Tactical Operations Center, in support of the U.S. diplomats and government personnel. This critical diplomatic effort stands as a barrier to prevent regional genocide. SOC answered this call with decisive and expedient actions, ‘standing up’ the mission thirty days ahead of schedule. Our security operations provide a stable pivot point for the U.S. embassy personnel and visiting dignitaries as this critical mission continues to evolve.
"Protection means moving 'outside the wire' so we can engage and influence. In that effort, nothing is more vital than colleagues like yours at SOC, who are, with your leadership, an essential instrument of the U.S. presence today."
