in the U.S. Southern Command Area of Responsibility.
"We will work with the partner nations to determine what it is they're interested in and where we can support, and we'll provide exchanges in those various areas," said Capt. Brian Nickerson, commander, Destroyer Squadron 40 and mission commander for Southern Partnership Station 2011.
