Inscription.
Operations in Bosnia-Herzegovina took on many different names between 1993-1998. Whether it was Operation Joint Endeavor, Joint Guard, Deny Flight, Deliberate Force, or Joint Forge, the special operations mission remained relatively unchanged. Located at San Vito Air Station near Brindisi, Italy, the Joint Special Operations Task Force 2 (JSOTF2) completed the following missions: combat search and rescue; fire support; and search and seizure.
Special Operations initially became involved in these peace efforts in February 1993 when the JSOTF2 was established. Elements of the 16 SOW and 352 SOG shared responsibilities for operations and aircraft deployment, providing continuous support to U.S. and NATO personnel until late 1998.
