Professor Larry McCabe, National Security Affairs Department, recently conducted a two-day seminar on international relations and geopolitics, Nov. 10-11, at the Escuela Naval Almirante Padilla (ENAP), the Colombian Navy’s command & staff school located in Cartagena, Colombia.

The relationship between NWC and the Colombia school has been rewarding for both.

The Naval War College is the perfect partner to help us do this.” The Naval War College supports USSOUTHCOM and USNAVSOUTH theater engagement plan’s throughout Latin America and the Caribbean.
