The 1999 Special Forces Conference andExposition was an unqualified success.This year’s conference theme,“Regionalengagement and the future,”gave the SFcommunity an opportunity to examine ourfuture role,our future training,and the values that will sustain us.The conference consisted of three sympo-siums that allowed senior SF soldiers to dis-cuss topics that will ultimately influencethe direction of Special Forces.From thesymposium “Special Forces Ideology,”wewill eventually prepare the statement of ourcore ideology.From “Army Special Opera-tions Task Force/Regional EngagementForce,we will outline concepts for thefuture employment of SF units.From “SF Assessment and Selection/SF QualificationCourse,”we will determine the changes nec-essary in the training of future SF soldiers.Junior and mid-grade SF soldiers partici-pated in workshops and generated recommen-dations for resolving a number of contempo-rary issues.The National Defense Industrial Associa-tion,or NDIA,hosted an exposition of con-temporary and future equipment,weaponsand technology that are relevant to the SFmission area.Conference attendees wereable to observe equipment that is in produc-tion as well as some that is in prototype.The Family Readiness Conference helpedreinforce the link between the welfare of families and SOF readiness.SOF unit fami-ly-advocacy representatives were updatedon the available training materials that canhelp families learn to cope with the stressesassociated with special operations.The conference’s activities gave us achance to see old friends and to make newacquaintances.The dedication to fallencomrades allowed us to remember thosewho are no longer in our ranks,and tohonor their sacrifices.This year’s conference was a cooperativeeffort by the Special Warfare Center andSchool,the Special Forces Command,the Army Special Operations Command,theNDIA,and the Special Forces Association.The special guests attending — GeneralHugh Shelton,chairman of the Joint Chiefs;General John M.Abrams,commander of the Army Training and Doctrine Command;General Peter J.Schoomaker,CINC USSO-COM;Ross Perot;and Wayne Newton —showed the wide range of support for SpecialForces and its activities.But the true stars of this year’s conferencewere the soldiers themselves:the participantsin the symposiums and in the workshops whocontributed with their own insights.The SFConference was not the final word on REF,coreideology or SF assessment and training.Thoseissues will continue to be tested,debated andstudied elsewhere.The real success of the SFConference is that members of the SF commu-nity came together,discussed the topics,gaineda consensus,and recorded their recommenda-tions.Those recommendations and the supportof the SF community will be invaluable as webuild a force relevant for the future.
