Partnership - Peace - Stability 
 
March 2010Greetings,It has been twelve extraordinary months since my last posturetestimonies to the Congressional Armed Services Committees. During that time, United States Arica Command ocused its eorts onsupporting measurable progress by Arican states in building capable and proessional militaries that are subordinate to civilian authority, respecthuman rights, and adhere to the rule o law. Tis, in turn, contributes toincreased security and stability in Arica. Te programs and activities o our command are in direct support o advancing and protecting U.S. interests in Arica. At the sametime, they provide an opportunity or Arican states and regional organizations to promote democracy,expand development, provide or their common deense, and better serve their people.Te steady growth in scope and participation o many o our earliest initiatives is one measure o oursuccess thus ar. Our rst maritime security initiative, the Arican Partnership Station, is now on itsfh rotation and has expanded rom West and Central Arica to include partner nations in East Aricaand the Western Indian Ocean. AFRICA ENDEAVOR, a multinational exercise aimed at testing andstrengthening the communications interoperability o Arican militaries to enable their coordinationin regional peacekeeping, humanitarian and disaster relie operations, has grown to more than 30 participating nations. With the growth o U.S. Arica Commands component and subordinate commands (Air Force,Army, Marine Corps, Navy, and Special Operations), new programs are making immediate impacts.Tis was vividly demonstrated by NAURAL FIRE, a humanitarian assistance and disaster responseexercise in Uganda and Kenya last all that brought together several central and eastern Arican nationsin a spirit o cooperation.Our inclusive approach o engaging other U.S. government agencies to develop collaborative programs bore much ruit. One particular example is the Arican Maritime Law EnorcementProgram, developed in collaboration with the Department o Homeland Security to leverage U.S.Coast Guard capabilities in eorts to strengthen the abilities o Arican partner nations to moreeectively control their territorial waters.As the 2010 U.S. Arica Command Posture Statement will show, our activities and programs arehelping our Arican partners assume an ever-increasing role in addressing security concerns o thecontinent and its island nations. By ocusing on long-term capacity building, we are implementing a preventive strategy that serves the interests o the United States, our Arican partners, and other allies.
