Special Operations Command. Established in the early nineties to improve interservice operability. Lessons were take from the failure of 'Desert One' in 1980 in the Iranian Desert, Operation Urgent Fury in Grenada, and Operation Just Cause. It is headquarted at MacDill Air Force Base in Florida and include the U.S Army Special Forces, U.S Navy Seals, U.S Air Force Special Operations, and as of mid 2004, Marine Detachment One or MARDET 1 is the USMC contribution to the Command. Further information can be found at socom.mil. On another note, computer geeks and other JACK OFFs consistently refer to the Playstation video game without making reference to the roots of the Acronym.
We at SOCOM are not at liberty to divulge any details of the alleged operation, so as not to betray classified details and techniques.

SOCOM is NOT just a videogame.

Special Operations COMmand.

Made up of the following units:

1) Army Special Operations Command
2) Naval Special Warfare Command
3)Air Force Special Operations Command

Each unit has their own force such as, and not limited to, Army Civil Affairs part of the ASOC, Navy SEALs part of the NSWC, and the AF Combat Weather part of the AFSOC. The Marines have their MEU and some alleged 81-man detachment unit, which may be defunct now and shit.
Those guys are too sensationalized by the media and armchair soldiers and shit, but they get the job done when needed.

Special Operations Command.
It is the real name for a Heckler and Koch Mark 23 .45 handgun. Very Identical to the HK USP Tactical.
The SOCOM is hardly packed by anybody except Special Forces.
