Perry Center LNO Steve Meyer Presentation in Honduras

March 20, 2014

On March 11, Perry Center Executive LNO to USSOUTHCOM Steve Meyer presented a Perry Center overview to an Army South–sponsored Civil-Military Relations Professional Development Exchange at the Honduran Defense Ministry. These overviews serve as the foundation for institutional relationship-building, bringing the mission and resources of the Perry Center to new audiences and partners. Participants included members of the Honduran Armed Forces, National Police, inter-agency, and NGOs. There were three attendees with prior DOD regional center relationships: Gustavo Adolfo Amador F. of the Honduran Joint Staff graduated from the CHDS-IADC Amistad course, Col. Carlos A. Portillo B. of the Honduran air force is a graduate of the George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies, and Col. Juan Carlos Gomez Garcia of the Honduran army is a current student in a Perry Center program at the Honduran Defense University. All five DOD regional centers work in concert to further the mission of the U.S. government through education, outreach programs, and research. It is a testament to the quality of the regional centers’ global reach and capacity for relationship-building that graduates from all centers remain at the forefront of the profession of security and defense.
