The USAF Special Operations School is the product of a 58-year evolutionary process. The process began in March 1961 when President John F. Kennedy, responding to Chairman Nikita S. Khruschev's clarion call for "wars of national liberation," cited the need for countering "subversion and guerilla warfare" that were the heart of Communist insurgency. As a result, the Air Force increased the emphasis given to special air warfare training.
