SOFREP Explained

SOFREP Explained

SOFREP.COM (Special Operations Forces Report-Special Ops News & Intel) is the number one site for authentic, accurate, and timely information related to the U.S. & Coalition Special Operations Community. In addition to daily reports and edgy foreign policy media content, we offer an in-depth Special Operations Wiki in our navigation bar.

What Makes us Unique?

Main stream media provide perspective on the Special Operations Forces (SOF) community, and report on foreign affairs but have no background or understanding on a lot of these issues. This lack of understanding leads to fundamental errors in their understanding of what’s happening in the world. Do you want reporting from a twenty-something who has never left the United States or from SOF and Intelligence veterans. provides an alternative viewpoint from writers who’ve been down range with boots on the ground in some of the most dangerous and relevant places being reported on today.
