FORT SAM HOUSTON, Texas - Army commanders from Nicaragua, Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador and security leaders from Panama arrive at U.S. Army North Jan. 30 as part of a U.S. Army South's Central American Regional Leaders' Conference. The commanders attended command briefings and heard from Oscar Salinas Jr., assistant chief, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, who touted the success Army North has had working with the Mexican army and air forces, known as SEDENA. "The Border Patrol's new strategic plan focuses on integration with federal, state, local and foreign partnerships," said Salinas. "The collaboration between Army North and SEDENA is one example of this integration."
