“Personal responsibility really is the core of the Special Operations Forces mentality, and the way you describe your business sounds very SOF. While things are done within the context of the team and team effort, each individual operator is expected to assume personal responsibility for achieving the mission and to think/act independently and creatively to ensure it’s done, particularly as it relates to his specific part in it. That penchant for independent/creative thinking and acting has tended to earn the revulsion of the conventional forces and our labeling by them as ‘rogue,’ but we get the job done.” —Tony Simpson, former Air Force Special Operations member
