HISTORY

The 196th ISOC Reserve (Capistrano Island Command) was established July 2000 when our own commander RCO Tim Kano (Kanowarrior) enlisted at the (then) USDOC recruiting booth by no less than the DIRDOC himself. Upon returning to his prior home, he was then relocated to Capistrano Island. The USDOC command there was sorely in need of reorganizing and Commander Kanowarrior set about righting things immediately.

Our command first partcipated in Operation Bright Candle and Operation Book Drop as the year came to a close. Shortly thereafter, Operation Wolf Pack commenced and again we were there. Three months later an emergency developed in the center of our island that required all our forces and reserves from many other USDOC units. The story of that struggle and the out come can be found here on the Operation Dark Portal pages. As training never ceases, our RCO then enrolled in the USDOC RCO training program and our services were again called upon during Operations April's Fool, Urban Blast I & II, Cyber-Ransom and Long-Range.

Recently due to the growing size of our unit, RCO Kanowarrior saw fit to add a second in command, Andrea Jean Blade. Her presence didn't take long to be felt and we are expecting her to further our committment to USDOC.
 
In 2003 USDOC suffered from a direct terrorist attack.  From the ashes rose ISOC, International Special Operations Command.  RCO Kanowarrior recieved a promotion to PCO Kanowarrior and Andrea Blade became the new RCO

LOCATION

Capistrano Island is located offshore of Southern California in the Pacific Ocean. It is the southern most of a chain of islands located there. The 196th ISOC Reserve is located on the northern half of the island. An active bombing range is located on the southern tip and Sector 11 which is now controlled by ISOC is in the center of it. Our position makes our base ideal for interdiction missions of vessels and aircraft coming from our southern borders and larger vessels coming from overseas.

UNIT RESOURCES

We are currently undergoing reorganization.  As of the end of 2002 our forces consisted of:
