U.S. Army North’s primary mission is to defend the homeland, but when natural disasters strike, it is often called in to lend support. Mimi Geerges interviewed Lt. Gen. John Evans, commanding general, about the role of the command.

  • Evans explained that U.S. Army North supports U.S. Northern Command in the land domain. While the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) focuses on securing the homeland, U.S. Army North focuses on defending it by responding in the event of an attack.
  • U.S. Army North is able to quickly send forces to support responses to disasters, such as hurricanes, wildfires and pandemics like Covid-19.
  • Evans said he is particularly proud of his command’s role in Operation Allies Welcome, helping resettle over 85,000 Afghan families last summer.
