BENS NY Metro welcomed former Colombian Ambassador to the United States, Juan Carlos Pinzon, this week to discuss the important partnership between the United States and Colombia. Members focused on the intersection of our countries’ long-term military relationship and economic investment.

The Middle East, South America, and Africa require and deserve our attention as well.” – Gen. Joseph Votel, USA (Ret.), BENS President & CEO
