Maj. Gen. Frederick S. Rudesheim (left), the U.S. Army South commanding general, and Chilean Col. Javier Assadi, the Chilean foreign liaison officer to Army South, are greeted by a Chilean army honor guard upon arriving at the Edificio Ejercito Bicentenario (Chilean army headquarters) for the first day of the army-to-army staff talks between the U.S. and Chilean armies Nov. 5, 2012, in Santiago, Chile. The staff talks are scheduled to take place Nov. 5-7, and will serve as a bilateral forum for strategic-level discussion between respective armies. The engagements enhance army-to-army contacts and mutual understanding, providing the partner nation armies with insights concerning specific U.S. Army programs, areas of mutual interest, and assisting partner nation armies in areas of modernization or reform.
