SANTIAGO, Chile —

Maj. Gen. Daniel Walrath, U.S. Army South commanding general, traveled to Santiago, Chile Sept. 17-19, where he joined other partner nation army leaders to celebrate Chile’s Independence Day and The Day of the Glories of the Chilean Army.

This was an opportunity to honor one of ARSOUTH’s strongest partners in the region and personally engage with Chilean Army leaders and senior leaders from six other partner nations, including Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay and Uruguay.

Army South uses these partner-nation relationships to strengthen regional security and counter transnational threats.
