US Northern Command team visits Mexico

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. (AP) - Personnel from the U.S. military command responsible for homeland security have met with members of Mexico's military in a visit to that country.

Army Gen. Charles H. Jacoby Jr., head of U.S. Northern Command, writes in his blog that the visit occurred last week.

Jacoby doesn't identify the personnel who made the trip.

He says they used the trip to strengthen what he called an "already strong relationship" between Northern Command and Mexico's military.

Northern Command is based at Peterson Air Force Base, Colo. It was formed after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, to work with civilian authorities during emergencies as well as defend U.S. soil.

Like his predecessors at Northern Command, Jacoby also heads the North American Aerospace Defense Command.
