CAPISTRANO ISLAND COMMAND
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.
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.
We are currently undergoing reorganization. As of the end of 2002 our
forces consisted of:
Our Command also has many other resources at it's disposal including an airbase, small harbor installations, a large training
area and many other amenities.
The 196th ISOC Reserve has achieved an ISOC Unit Readiness Rating of "2" and
its specialities include:
