It’s great to be back at Small Wars Journal. It’s been nearly a year since my last post. Since then, I returned to the United States after 24 consecutive months in Afghanistan and assumed command of U.S. Army North (Fifth Army).  I’d like to take a moment to talk about this incredible organization, especially our continuing partnership with Mexico's Secretariat of National Defense, or SEDENA.
