Commander of Air Force Space Command visits AFSOC
U.S. Air Force Gen. Jay Raymond, Air Force Space Command commander, listens to U.S. Air Force Lt. Gen. Jim Slife, commander of Air Force Special Operations Command, provide an Operation Eagle Claw brief at Hurlburt Field, Florida, Aug. 21, 2019. Operation Eagle Claw, conducted April 24, 1980, was a complex mission to rescue 52 U.S. citizens held hostage in the U.S. embassy in Iran. The operation was one of the leading reasons behind the stand-up of United States Special Operations Command, which placed all military special operations units under the same chain of command, increasing service interoperability.
