Interview with Major General Antony Anderson, Chief of Defence Staff, Jamaica Defence Force
By Geraldine Cook February 01, 2013
Jamaica’s Major General Antony Anderson, chief of the Caribbean island’s Defense Force, swears by the importance of training as a powerful weapon for the 4,000 men and women he commands. With a relatively small force and monumental challenges to face, he believes militaries far beyond his country’s blue waters can also benefit from training together to counter transnational threats such as drug, weapons and human trafficking. Maj. Gen. Anderson spoke about this and other defense topics in this interview with Diálogo, during the Caribbean Nations Security Conference, organized by the United States Southern Command in December 2012.
