Another week in the books, folks. And if you’re like me, most of it went by in a blur. Here’s a roundup of our coverage to help you get back up to speed.

Last week brought a slew of news from the Special Operations Community. To begin, we were stoked to celebrate the graduation of only the second female to emerge from the Special Forces Qualification Course with the coveted Green Beret. Her graduation from the program comes during a shift that’s underway inside the SOF community. The days of dip-spitting, tatted-up door-kickers are fading, giving way to smarter, more tech-savvy groups of operators that are better prepared for the threats of future battlefields

Soldiers gather to celebrate the SOF graduates.

We also reported on the ongoing investigation into the death of MSG Nathan Goodman, the Green Beret who was killed in a HALO jump accident in January. Sources confirm that a new working group was established to investigate the specific cause of the accident: some new information points to the parachute deployment technique that was used in the jump. MSG Goodman’s death reminds us that the SOF community continues to deserve our support; you can support it directly via this annual auction that gives directly to the community

Only yesterday, we published a report on how former SOF members are being recruited by companies to help secure polling stations for the upcoming November 3rd Presidential Election.
