SUBJECT: Establishment of the Naval Special Warfare Development Group
Effective until rescinded or superseded
The recent history and vulnerabilities acknowledged has brought to light the need for a formidable force in order to tackle the growing threats on the battlefield. In order to effectively address these risks the Department of Defense requires a command that possesses the required technical and tactical capability that is able to remain focused through the ever developing battles being fought today. This command must be capable of synchronizing war fighting effects across the area of operations and remain able to support international partnerships.
Effective immediately, Commander, Naval Special Warfare Command (NSWC) is directed to establish the Naval Special Warfare Development Group (NSWDG) to address these threats. In conjunction with its establishment, the NSWDG is tasked with the on-going development of new war fighting strategies in order to secure the battle space indefinitely.
This command will reach initial operating capability (IOC) not later than December 2012 and full operating capability (FOC) not later than June 2013. Headquarters for NSWDG will be temporarily established at Dam Neck, Virginia, this matter is to be readdressed at a later time.
Authority has been delegated to the Commander, NSWDG for the approval of all awards and promotions for all assigned personnel as well as authority to bestow awards upon allied personnel.
