Regional Command Southwest
Regional Command Southwest, abbreviated RC(SW), was an international military formation, of roughly division size, which was one of the components of the International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan. It was stood up on 3 July 2010 largely from an area previously in Regional Command South. It is headquartered at Camp Leatherneck and commanded by Major General Walter L. Miller. The area of responsibility is largely Helmand and Nimruz provinces. The United States Marine Corps provides the majority of the force headquarters. It consists of Task Force Helmand of the British Armed Forces (including Denmark and Estonia) and Task Force Leatherneck of the United States Marine Corps. Provincial Reconstruction Team Helmand is also located in Regional Command Southwest.
The command was stood down during 2014.
