http://www.defensetech.org/archives/003544.html Link to Article above,: Vice Adm. Eric Olson to become the head of Special Operations Command. Olson would be the first SEAL to reach that component commander rank and would be the first SEAL to take over a community long dominated by the Army. Ive had occasion to interview Adm. Olson in the past and far from the image of a spec ops knuckle dragger, I found him open, honest, confident and comfortable with the media. We at DT wish him luck. Olson sat beside another very qualified colleague at the hearing whos been nominated to become the ASD for Special Operations and Low Intensity Conflict. See link for the rest of the article.
