Special Forces Numbers To Grow At NC Army Post

Special operations at a North Carolina Army post will swell by an additional 500 soldiers despite the departure of a large special forces group in 2011.

The Fayetteville Observer reported Tuesday that special operations commander Adm. Eric Olson said the number of special operations soldiers will grow even after more than 2,000 leave Fort Bragg for Eglin Air Force Base, Fla. in 2011. The soldiers will take 4,000 family members with them.

Olson spoke about the future of special forces at Fort Bragg on
Tuesday. He recommended expanding special operations at the post by
an additional 3 to 5 percent over the next four to five years.
