An upbeat New Year’s message from the Command Team of the Combined Joint Task Force, Lt. General Paul Funk and Command Sergeant Major Michael Crosby.
The task force, which has 74 partners in the coalition fighting ISIS under Operation Inherent Resolve, was hugely successful in 2017, including:
- Clearing ISIS from over 100,000 square kilometers (38,700 square miles)
- Freed over 7.5 million people
- Liberated Mosul, Iraq and Raqqa, Syria (dual capitals of ISIS’ “caliphate”)
