The Department of State's Bureau of International Information Programs (IIP) is pleased to announce its newest eJournal USA, "Improving Lives: Military Humanitarian and Assistance Programs." The first issue of this illustrated electronic journal was published November 30.

This electronic journal describes the little-told story of the humanitarian assistance and military training programs the U.S. armed forces provide for countries around the world. These activities strengthen national and regional security interests; promote democracy and civil authority over militaries; foster human rights and open-market economies; and provide medical, educational, disaster-relief and other kinds of aid.

The Department of Defense, in cooperation with the Department of State and the U.S. Agency for International Development, funds many of these programs, which are in keeping with President Bush's stated goal, as expressed in a recent radio address, "to pursue a confident foreign policy agenda that will spread freedom and hope and make our nation more secure. America seeks wider trade and broader freedom and greater security for the benefit of America, our partners, and all of the world."
