Now, SOFREP plans to take SpecialOperations.com back to its roots and reinvigorate it as a SOF wiki that contains history, education and serves as a learning portal for worldwide SOF. If anyone can do it, it’s the staff at SOFREP.
I asked Brandon Webb if they were going to keep the forum
and at this point he was unsure. Brandon updated me that SOCNET is a separate entity and will remain in place.
If you are not familiar with SpecialOperations.com, you should really check it out if you are interested in researching this industry or special operations. A big hat tip to Soldier Systems blog for the heads up on this.
The other really smart thing about this move is the URL of specialoperations.com has some incredible search value. Type ‘special operations’ into Google and it captures first page of search for those key words.
So will this will be a paid for subscription or a free service? According to SOFREP, it will continue to be free and open to the public as a special operations academic and historical resource. Congrats to SOFREP and good luck with revamping the site. -Matt
Edit: 08/27/2013 The owners of SOCNET forum have contacted me to say that their forum is a completely separate thing from specialoperations.com and that SOFREP does not own it.
