Lt. Col. Eric Corder, assistant director of operations for the 225th Air Defense Squadron, greets members of the Guatemalan Air Force Aug. 25, 2017.  As part of the State Partnership Program visit, Corder leveraged his 28 years of air defense expertise to provide feedback about the functionality and validity of the Guatemalan national air defense network.  The SPP links a state's National Guard with the armed forces of a partner country in a cooperative, mutually beneficial relationship by means of tailored, small footprint, high-impact security cooperation engagements that foster long-term enduring relationships with U.S. friends and allies around the world.  The SPP arose from a 1991 U.S. European Command decision to pair reserve component soldiers and airmen with the armed forces of the then newly formed nations of the Baltic Region following the collapse of the Soviet Bloc.
