The Jordanian Armed Forces, also referred to as the Arab Army, with all of its branches, is under direct control of the King of Jordan who is the Commander-in-Chief. With approximately 110,000 members, it is considered to be among the most professional in the region, and is seen as particularly well trained and organized. Jordanian forces have been integral to The Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), founded in the mid-1990s, focusing on both internal security in support of the Middle East peace process and border security.
“To me, just going to Orlando and being privileged enough to be part of the reason for having
the Jordanian flag raised with all other flags encapsulates what the Invictus Games mean to me. I hope our participation will encourage other aspiring disabled athletes to ”get out of their homes, break out of their shells, immerse themselves in sports and just play!” – Jamal Abdel-Rahman Baker Damra – Private, Army
