There is a group of paintball players out on the east coast that have combined under the common command of an organization they call the Joint Special Operations Command:
JSOC Mission Statement - The Joint-Special-Operations-Command "J.S.O.C." is an association of tactical scenario (paintball) teams founded in September, 2005 by several paintball teams. In a patriotic gesture they all made a pact to fight the Allied Side in any scenario that offered that choice. To be a part of the JSOC means you are playing paintball for more reasons than one. Supporting the game, the players and the passion of the game, is part of the commitment to play along side the J.S.O.C. and support the Allied side in the game and in spirit for all our Armed Forces. ...the patch is worn by all united under one banner. Each team represents a Unit of the JSOC. Each unit plays a decisive role in strategy and planning...
Awhile back I made my thoughts known to the "Commander" of this paintball organization concerning their use of the JSOC name. I was a member at one time of a unit assigned to the real JSOC. The real JSOC mission statement is much different from the one above. The real JSOC mission statement includes a commitment to the safety and security of the United States. It is a commitment that has been maintained at a cost - the lives of good men, some who I new personally. I made it clear I do not care for what I consider their cavalier use of the title Joint Special Operations Command.
The response was not a surprise. "Chill out." I've heard it before.
And that's what I do. I chill. God, bless the men and women of the real Joint Special Operations Command and the Joint Communications Unit.
