FORT BRAGG, N.C. (USASOC News Service, March 23, 2009) – Green Berets from across the globe will converge on Fort Bragg April 20-22 to discuss the status of the Special Forces regiment; get updates on current training and operations, and honor individuals who have added to the Green Berets’ storied lineage.

The U.S. Army John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School will partner with the U.S. Army Special Forces Command, both based at Fort Bragg, to present the 2009 Special Forces Symposium at the Crown Coliseum in Fayetteville.

On tap for this year’s symposium are general information sessions, a golf tournament and a banquet. Assembled members of the Army’s operational Special Forces groups will also participate in a commander’s readiness conference, sponsored by USASFC.

During the banquet, April 22, three military units that gave birth to Army Special Forces will be inducted as Distinguished Members of the Regiment: the Alamo Scouts, First Special Service Force and the Office of Strategic Services.

Members of the Special Forces Regiment and other interested individuals should visit the symposium website to register to attend.

An exposition of military equipment and technologies will occur simultaneously with the Special Forces Symposium at the Crown Coliseum. The expo will be open to all military identification card holders and members of the civilian law enforcement community.
