aThis past week, U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) gave way to political pressures again by announcing their new Chief of Diversity & Inclusion on Twitter. The position will be held by Mr. Richard Torres-Estrada.

According to USSOCOM’s Twitter post,

“USSOCOM welcomes our new Chief of Diversity & Inclusion, Mr. Richard Torres-Estrada. We look forward to his contribution in enhancing the capabilities and effectiveness of #SOF through diversity of talent, helping us recruit the best of the best. #QuietProfessionals”

This is a joke of a position to make politicians on the hill feel better. While I have nothing against Mr. Torres-Estrada, what in the world do we need this position for?
