This month, the last ISIS jihadists are holding out, on the brink of defeat, in Baghouz, a small Syrian village. Combined Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve, the U.S.-led 73-nation coalition established in June 2014, has degraded the ability of ISIS to recruit, train, plan, resource, inspire and execute attacks worldwide. The coalition’s collective accomplishments include training and equipping more than 170,000 Iraqi security forces and thousands of internal security forces in northeastern Syria; recapturing 99% of the territory previously held by ISIS in Iraq and Syria; and liberating nearly eight million Iraqis and Syrians from ISIS’s brutal rule.

Returning from a yearlong deployment fighting ISIS, three-star Lieutenant General Paul Funk II is the Commanding General of the U.S. Army’s III Corps and the Commander of Fort Hood. III Corps has led operational control of Combined Joint Task Force - Operation Inherent Resolve on three different occasions since 2015. General Funk has deployed five times, leading soldiers in combat during Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm, Iraqi Freedom, and Enduring Freedom.
