    SOJTF-OIR Patching Ceremony

    Southwest Asia (April, 14, 2017) – Command Sgt. Maj. Brian Rarey, senior enlisted advisor of Special Operations Joint Task Force - Operation Inherent Resolve, speaks to coalition troops about the mission of SOJTF-OIR and the symbolism of the new unit patch. SOJTF-OIR conducted a re-patching ceremony to replace the interim 1st Special Forces Group unit patch previously worn in Southwest Asia. The newly-approved patch prominently features black and gold colors and a spear. Black represents activities performed under cover of darkness while gold represents excellence. The spearhead itself represents special forces as being “the tip of the spear.” SOJTF-OIR is the special operations commander subordinate to the Combined Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve. CJTF-OIR is the global Coalition to defeat ISIS in Iraq and Syria. (U.S. Army photo by Sgt. Dakota Price, SOJTF-OIR)
