Commander meets NEW HORIZONS personnel and visits sites

U.S. Marine Corps 1st Lt. Robert Brown, a combat engineering officer and construction site officer in charge with the 271st Marine Wing Support Squadron, 2nd Marine Air Wing, out of Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, N.C., discusses construction progress with U.S. Air Force Col. James Sheedy, 474th Air Expeditionary Group and 612th Theater Operations Group commander, out of Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Ariz., during a visit to the NEW HORIZONS Honduras Gabriela Mistral primary school construction site in Ocotes Alto, Honduras, June 10, 2015. “The United States Southern Command’s top priority is building up our partner nation’s capacity. Being able to see U.S. military Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines out here being able to help out one of our partners in the Latin American region is tremendous. What they’re doing to help the local population is incredible,” said Sheedy. Sheedy also visited exercise personnel at the Honduras Aguan well site, Gabriela Mistral primary school construction site, and saw the Dr. Salvador Paredos Hospital. Launched in the 1980’s, NEW HORIZONS is an annual joint humanitarian assistance exercise conducted by U.S. Southern Command with a partner nation in Central America, South America or the Caribbean. The exercise improves joint readiness training of U.S. and partner nation civil engineers, medical professionals and support personnel. (U.S. Air Force photo by Capt. David J. Murphy/Released)
