Military plans 12 medical training trips to Haiti

MIAMI (AP) - The training schedule for U.S. military operations
in Latin American and the Caribbean is changing because of ongoing relief efforts in Haiti.

U.S. Southern Command announced a revamped training schedule Friday.

Typically, SouthCom runs nearly a dozen multinational
exercises focused on security and humanitarian assistance in the
region.

Three exercises were canceled. One new humanitarian exercise in
Haiti is scheduled this summer. A dozen medical training exercises
will provide medical support in Haiti through September.

SouthCom officials say the training schedule was adjusted in
response to the catastrophic Jan. 12 earthquake in Haiti, and could be changed again if their operational needs change.
