The author reflects on the improvements needed by the U.S. Naval forces in order to be a partner in special operations. It is argued that the Navy's focus has drifted from the traditional responsibilities since the fall of the Soviet Union. The author stresses that with operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Navy must adapt to support the operations of its service counterparts and the mission at hand. Detail related to their requirements of helicopter units in such operations is presented.
