Another Miller update, this time not a letter, but action

The Defense Department today started the process of elevating special operations forces on par with military departments per authority from the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act, according to the acting defense secretary.

"This reform will immediately improve agility to the department and the command and will enable us to streamline information flow, enhance decision making, and more adaptively and adeptly support our commanders and their superb soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines," he said.

The change is also in line with the National Defense Strategy and will bolster the department's efforts to remain ahead in the great power competition with Russia and China as well as combating transnational threats, he added.

Miller said he hopes that in the future, Congress will elevate the ASD (SO/LIC) position to under secretary of defense.

I hope this bodes well for all of USSOCOM's units.
