With U.S. Special Operations Command in such great demand around the world, and often requiring permission from the State Department before engaging, folks in Tampa attending an upcoming special ops conference in Tampa will get to hear from the Secretary of State herself.

SOCCOM will host U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton as keynote speaker for the International Special Operations Forces Week conference Gala Dinner at the Tampa Convention Center Wednesday, May 23.
