        DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (BP)--William G. Boykin is not just big and strong, but to hear him speak, he is a man with a big, strong faith in God.

         Boykin, commanding general of the U.S. Army's John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School in Fort Bragg, N.C., heads Special Forces, including Delta Force. That unit of soldiers goes into situations that most civilians can't even imagine. And they go in as warriors.

    Boykin spoke to a full sanctuary, which included participants of the National FAITH Institute meeting in Daytona Beach, Fla., Jan. 28-31, as well as church members and others from the Daytona Beach community. Read More
