A four-star Army general, Franks is best known for leading Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan and Operation Iraqi Freedom in Iraq. President George W. Bush awarded him the Presidential Medal of Freedom last year. Neal McCoy, whose new album includes a recitation from Franks, will introduce the general to the industry audience.
