LITTLE CREEK, Va. (NNS) -- Naval Special Warfare Group (NSWG) 10 joined the Naval Special Warfare (NSW) community May 25, during a commissioning ceremony at the SEAL Heritage Center on Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story.

NSWG 10 is an echelon III command that will organize, train, educate, equip, deploy and sustain specialized intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and preparation-of-the-environment capabilities through existing NSW commands including: NSW Support Activity One, NSW Support Activity Two and the Mission Support Center.

Capt. Braddock W. Treadway assumed command of NSWG 10 during the commissioning ceremony after spending the past seven months working to stand up the command.

"Having recently served as commanding officer of Support Activity, I would gladly back such an innovative and outstanding organization. I look forward to serving the men and women of both Support Activity One and Two and the Mission Support Center," said Treadway.

NSW commander, Rear Adm. Edward G. Winters III spoke at the commissioning and noted that NSWG 10 will continue to evolve and be ahead of the nation's enemies.
"We will only be limited by our imaginations," said Winters.
