TF Dagger was established in order to address additional needs of wounded Army special operations soldiers and their families within the USASOC community. The founding members have all served in Army special operations units and have experienced these types of difficulties during their careers with the US Army Special Operations.   

Why the Task Force Dagger Name? Task Force Dagger was the designation of the Special Forces elements that conducted the initial invasion into Afghanistan following the terrorist attack on the United States on September 11th, 2001. Task Force Dagger was comprised of elements from the US Army Special Operations Command (USASOC).

For more than forty years, USASOC units have been the tip of the spear in defending and protecting the United States. These warriors live in the shadows protecting the American way of life. Living by the motto of “The Quiet Professionals,” these soldiers deploy around the world working to keep Americans safe while keeping their presence unknown but to a few.

Activated on December 1st, 1989, USASOC is comprised of the following units :
US Army Special Forces, US Army Rangers, 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment, US Army John F. Kennedy Special Warfare School, 95th Civil Affairs Brigade, Sustainment Brigade (Special Operations), and the 4th Psychological Operations Group.
