    10. USNORTHCOM Strategic Construct USNORTHCOMs planning and execution of military operations needs to be integrated and synchronized within a larger National Security and Military Strategy construct, and in coordination with other combatant commands and government agencies. The most important priority is to protect our homeland. We also recognize our responsibilities under the NORAD and Canadian-US agreements, as well as North Atlantic Treaty (i.e., Article V). NORTHCOMs areas of interest and influence extend across two major dimensions. In the Forward Regions (Example- Operation ENDURING FREEDOM), NORTHCOM will be responsible for providing consequence management to other combatant commanders and coordinating with other commands to ensure seams (i.e., C4I and Area of Operations boundaries) are addressed and covered. The NORTHCOM mission includes homeland defense operations against potential threats and assists the efforts of a Lead Federal Agency in a civil support role or for consequence management.
