Vice Admiral Sean A. Pybus commander of NATO SOF finished his visit to the Polish Special Operations Forces Command (DWS) based in Krakow. It was his first trip to Poland since he assumed the duties as Commander of NATO Special Forces (NATO Special Operations Forces Headquarters – NS HQ ) in June this year.
On October 22 the American guest had the opportunity to personally inspect the preparations of Polish commandos for duty as part of the NATO Response Force – NRF. During the meeting at the Combined Operations Centre of DWS, the high-ranking officers discussed the current status of the tasks performed by the DWS and the way towards the creation of NATO Special Operations Component Command – NATO SOCC.
DWS is soon to achieve the capacity to plan and manage NATO special operations, and thus Poland will become a framework nation in the field of special operations.
