@Cipherhornet18

Can you please edit in the meaning of this, thank you  :)

SOCOM - US Special Operations Command

SOF - Special Operations Force

DEVGRU - Naval Special Warfare Development Group, more commonly and incorrectly referred to as SEAL Team Six

OPFOR - Opposing Force, generally used in training for the side who are the "bad guys"

USSOUTHCOM - US Southern Command, responsible for all US forces and operations related to Central and South America, as well as the Caribbean

QRF - Quick Reaction Force/Quick Response Force, effectively the on-call reinforcements assigned to a mission who are positioned in such a manner that they may not be involved initially in the mission but are available to rapidly become involved if called.

OGA - Other Government Agency. Typically used by persons working for an agency whose involvement can not be openly stated (such as the CIA), and so the term OGA is substituted instead.

Special Operations Comand- SOCOM

Opposing Force- OPFOR. Often used in wargames/exercises

USSOUTHCOM= U.S. Southern Command

SOUTHCOM is responsible for providing contingency planning, operations, and security cooperation in its assigned Area of Responsibility which includes:

 Central America

South America

The Caribbean (except U.S. commonwealths, territories, and possessions)



Those are what I know off hand, I had to look up with SouthComm did. I'll let Cipher fill in the rest.
