Jason was accepted fast into the group and became a good operator that the 141 could depend on. During deployments across the world, Jason proved himself useful in every situation, from sniping to CQC, he became one of the most versatile operators the 141 had gotten in some time.

Price got in touch with Makarov where they found out where Shepherd was located and hunted him down in Afghanistan.

The 141 deployed across the world hunting down leads of terrorists and war criminals. They worked alongside many Tier One Operation Groups that allowed them to infiltrate anywhere, execute a raid and get out alive. With Price in command, they were able to use more operators which allowed them to come back alive more often than just the four to six operators that would go out before.
The 141 became famous when they took out an Albanian sex ring that extended all the way into the United States and back down to Vietnam. They ran 47 operations across the world taking out leaders and handlers rescuing over 100,000 girls who were sold and given back to their families.
