JFQ: Joint Force Quarterly;Summer2006, Issue 42, p22
The article focuses on the U.S. National Guard's State Partnership Program (SSP), an international security cooperation effort. As part of the program, forces from the U.S. Southern Command went to Guatemala in 2005 to support the local authorities inspecting damage from Hurricane Stan. The SSP is a vehicle for military-to-military and military-to-civilian cooperation. In a nonconfrontational manner, it advances the security policy of the U.S. through constructive military associations.
