Echo Squadron

Task Force Black - Unit Deativated; Details Classified

"When American and British forces invaded Iraq in March 2003, select teams of special forces and intelligence operatives got to work looking for the WMD their governments had promised were there. They quickly realized no such weapons existed. Instead they faced an insurgency soaring spiral of extremism and violence that was almost impossible to understand, let alone reverse. Facing defeat, the Coalition waged a hidden war within a war. Major-General Stan McChrystal devised a campaign fusing special forces, aircraft, and the latest surveillance technology with the aim of taking down the enemy faster than it could regenerate. Guided by intelligence, British and American special forces conducted a relentless onslaught, night after night targeting al-Qaeda and other insurgent groups." - Task Force Black, author Mark Urban.

Storm 6 and Echo Squadron are merging to form a new team - Task Force Black. The unit patch above was derived from the Spartan shield and is intentionally left nondescript as would be expected of a "Special" Allied Joint Task Force.

We use that name to honor those whom participated in the actual unit and mean only the highest respect for their actions and sacrafices.
