Oregon Army National Guard Maj. Micah Goettl, of the Oregon National Guard, discusses disaster preparedness with his Bangladesh counterparts during the second annual Pacific Resilience Disaster Response Exercise & Exchange (DREE) in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

The five day event, which was held 25-29 Sep 2011 and led by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Civil-Military Emergency Preparedness (CMEP) program, fostered security cooperation and best practices in responding to and recovering from a catastrophic earthquake.
