Dean is assigned to the Fort Bragg-based U.S. Army Security Assistance Training Management Organization (SATMO) and participated in the advise-and-assist mission in Nigeria during winter 2018. SATMO deploys U.S.-based teams to execute security assistance missions outside the continental United States. SATMO has successfully deployed training and advisory teams to every geographic combatant command, hence the motto “Training the World, One Soldier at a Time." Their mission is vital to achieving U.S. national security objectives and stability in various key locations throughout the world.

The U.S. Army Security Assistance Training Management Organization began as a part of the John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center's United States Army Institute for Military Assistance in 1974. Eventually growing into a Field Operating Agency, USASATMO served as the Training and Doctrine Command's executive agent for matters relating to overseas security assistance training management and support. On Oct. 9, 2010 a re-flagging/patching ceremony was held which transferred USASATMO from TRADOC to the Army Materiel Command as a subordinate organization to the U.S. Army Security Assistance Command.

The brigade-equivalent command is headquartered at Fort Bragg, N.C., and employs more than 260 Soldiers, Department of Army civilians and contractors who are deployed to more than 20 countries throughout the year to meet the requirements of the foreign nations requesting training assistance.
