Special Operations Summit and Warfighter Exhibition 2015
- 22 June, 2015 - 24 June, 2015, Fort Bragg, NC, United States
Understanding the Requirements of the U.S. Army's Special Operations Forces
We are proud to present the Special Operations Summit & Warfighter Expo taking place, for the first time, on Fort Bragg, NC, home of Army Special Operations. Since the War on Terror began over a decade ago, the need for special operators has grown dramatically. This is primarily due to the asymmetric warfare that terrorist organizations are waging against US and NATO forces.
With new terrorist factions emerging and causing threat, SOF requirements continue to evolve and be reevaluated. Working together with our partner nations, Special Operations Forces are leading the way as they protect our soldiers, citizens, allies, and freedom.
