Special Forces Liaison Element

Definition/Scope: The SFLE is an SF or joint SO element that conducts liaison between SOF, U.S. conventional forces, and HN or multinational forces. It is formed only as needed. SFLEs conduct these functions when conventional forces or host or multinational forces have not practiced interoperability before the operation, when the forces do not share common operational procedures or communications equipment, or when a significant language or cultural barrier exists.
