I believe what you read, but find it inaccurate.
Meant to write Naval Special Warfare Development Group (DEVGRU). Detachment 6 is the only team not reporting to Group Two which is my understanding that Colin was not their direct report.
It is my understanding that Naval Special Warfare Command has 5 direct reports, Groups 1 through 4 and Group 5 (Reserves).
Group 2 (Little Creek and Germany) consists of even teams, 2,4,8,10 and Unit 2 in Germany, plus a training detachment and logistics and support unit. It is my understanding this was Colin's last assignment until now being assinged to NSC.
DEVGRU (Dam Neck Annex, VA) only has development and Team 6. It's linear report is not to Naval Special Warfare Command, but to Joint Special Operations Command, operationally.
Just like 1st SFOD-D, they are both Tier 1, black elements, not gray ops which have a typical military chain of command. Tier 1 have a direct report to Joint Special Operations Command, Sec. of Defense, Joint Chiefs and President because of the types of assignments that require direct Presidential authority.
Post retirement, many former Team 6 and Force Recon Marines, now US Marine Special Operations Group (2500 strong) join the NCS-SAD-SOG team. Typically, very few AF or former Army on that team, 90 from Dept of Navy.
Colin's path likely post NSC assignmnent could be Naval Special Warfare Command. then possibly JSOC where McRaven and Olson have served and possibly then to SOCOM. As Olson and McRaven are the only Seal 3 and 4 stars and both slated to retire by 2015, Colin now that he is a 1 star has a shot to advance quickly, but there will be plenty of competition for 2 star in special operations community from all 4 branches.
Top notch guy. Very happy for Rear Admiral (lower half) Kilrain.
