SEARCY, AR - Retired Army General Tommy Franks, commander in chief of U.S. Central Command for three years, will address Harding University's Benson Auditorium in Searcy on April 22.  Until his retirement in August 2003, Franks was responsible for all U.S. military operations for 25 countries in Africa, Central Asia and the Middle East.

General Franks served during some of the most difficult times in U.S. military history, including the attack on the U.S. Cole, 9-11, and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
