528th Sustainment Brigade, Special Operations (Airborne)

528th

The Mission:

The 528th Sustainment Brigade (Special Operations) (Airborne) sets operational-level logistics conditions in order to enable Army Special Operations Forces (ARSOF) and joint element missions by providing tailored logistics, signal, medical and intelligence support to the Global Special Operations Forces (SOF) network.

The 528th SB (SO) (A) embodies its motto “We Support to the Utmost.” The Brigade is unique as compared to other Army sustainment brigades in that it maintains constant global situational awareness of deployed ARSOF logistics support structures. The Brigade is multi-composition in structure, is focused at the operational level for logistics planning and synchronization, and is designed to deploy as small, modular “units of action.” As an Airborne unit the Brigade is capable of deploying worldwide upon notification as a strategic crisis response force and secure key objectives for follow-on military operations.


Who We Are Looking For:

Most special operations forces (SOF) require non-SOF assistance. This is a SOF truth that defines the SOF support Soldier or "SOF Enabler." SOF Enablers include; cooks and mechanics, logisticians, communicators, intelligence analysts and medical specialist. SOF relies on these specialized troopers for support -- in garrison, in the field and most critically, in combat. But we are not looking for just any Soldier to lend a hand, we demand excellence and the ability to operate with minimal guidance and supervision. SOF Enablers must be reliable, dependable and trustworthy with the understanding that they will be required and expected to accomplish all of their tasks with little to no supervision without fail. They must be adaptable and versatile with the ability to problem solve any unforeseen circumstances or events. A SOF Enabler must be resilient and ready to deploy at all times. Not only should the Soldier be physically superior, but mentally tough and able to endure the stressors associated with being in a high operation's tempo organization.
