The U.S. Army John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School invests in the development of human capital to produce Civil Affairs, Military Information Support Operations and Special Forces Soldiers from recruitment to retirement in order to provide our regiments with a professionally trained and well-educated force.


"As the Army's Special Operations Center of Excellence, we must produce world-class, quality ARSOF troopers, and set a pace the members of the USAJFKSWCS Family Business can sustain. Better, not bigger, quality not quantity is paramount to our overall success. This is a Family Business; we will collectively ensure that the Center and School provide world-class training and education."

Maj. Gen. Eric P. Wendt, SWCS Commanding General
