Strengthen Partnerships

U.S. Southern Command is part of a multinational and whole‐of-government team working to advance security, governance, and economic opportunity in our neighborhood.

Counter Threats

U.S. Southern Command will increase cooperation and information sharing with allies and partners to understand and counter threats from transnational criminal organizations, violent extremist organizations, and malign regional and external state actors.

Build Our Team

Our U.S. Southern Command team will be ready for both steady state and crisis operations. Knowledge matters: we must have a trained, educated, and highly competent work force.
