VIDEO: Special Forces – A Smaller Footprint

Kicking down a door, a Romanian special operator recovers a hostage from an enemy fighter that just collapsed under the fire of incoming boats. He races back to his Danish and Norwegian companions and out across the water to Blackhawk helicopters waiting to fly them to safety.

This show of force was a demonstration of multinational Special Operations Forces (SOF) capabilities at an international conference in Tampa, Florida, in May 2014. This could have been the beginning of an action movie, or media coverage of an incident that fits the perceptions the public often has of special forces. However, experts at the event wanted to emphasize that Special Operations Forces are more than door-kickers.
