MISSION STATEMENT
Defend Earth from possible hostile invasion. Explore new worlds and return new technologies for research and development.

Having said the above, the mission of SG-SOCOM, also known as SG-SOC or SGSOC, is to support the SGC in the defense of Earth by employing a combination of several Joint Forces Special Operation Commands. The SG-SOC has broken down its combatant units into two distinct groups; Off-World Ops and Space & Air Ops. The SG-SOC is under the command of USSOCOM, but tasked with supporting the functions of the SGC's special operations requirements. Once deployed its units will coordinate with the local SGC commander to accomplish the overall mission objectives and goals. 

Occasionally however, the SG-SOC will still explore new worlds and try to return with new technologies for research and future development for the defense of earth, when not acting in a support role for an ongoing SGC mission.

CHAIN OF COMMAND

 

The Stargate and any related programs remained dormant until 1997, when it was confirmed that the Stargate was capable of connecting with multiple destinations. Realizing the Goa'uld threat, Stargate Command (SGC) was formed with a contingent of SG teams. Their standing orders, along with the SGC, were to acquire weapons or technology that could help Earth in the fight against the Goa'uld, including establishing alliances. From that point forward, the SGC began exploring hundreds of worlds, and after encountering a few advanced races, researching and developing many alien/human-hybrid devices, such as fighter-jets capable of spaceflight, and Earth-designed battlecruisers.

The concept of a Special Forces component to augment the SG teams was born in the fall of 2001. With the US Military shifting its focus to combat the global war on terrorism, the SGC and and its supportive commands redoubled their efforts to protect the HomeWorld. With the ever pending threat of possible hostile invasion, there was a need to expand the fledgling SG Special Forces. By the summer of 2005, the highly trained Special Forces teams were expanded into a more comprehensive, flexible and responsive Special Operations Command and renamed, SG-SOCOM.

Thus the mission of SG-SOCOM, also known as SG-SOC or SGSOC, is to support the SGC in the defense of Earth by employing a combination of several Joint Forces Special Operation Commands. The SG-SOC has broken down its combatant units into two distinct groups; Off-World Ops and Space & Air Ops. The SG-SOC is under the command of USSOCOM, but tasked with supporting the functions of the SGC's special operations requirements. Once deployed its units will coordinate with the local SGC commander to accomplish the overall mission objectives and goals. Occasionally however, the SG-SOC will still explore new worlds and try to return with new technologies for research and future development for the defense of earth, when not acting in a support role for an ongoing SGC mission. To aid this combatant command, Combat Medical strives to keep the brave soldiers in these units in peak physical condition. While the specialized SG Snipers serve with distinction among the various Off-Worlds Ops teams, helping to ensure a tactical advantage whenever possible.

Since its inception, the SG-SOC has worked vigilantly to fulfill its mission's mandate. Accordingly, these SOC teams and squadrons have served in numerous off-world operations, both fulfilling its own mission objectives, as well as supporting the SG teams, the Alpha, Beta, Gamma and Omega sites, the Atlantis Project and most recently the Icarus Project.
