U.S. Troops Specializing in Engineering Provide Services to Communities in Panama
By Dialogo July 30, 2013
Beyond the Horizon – Panama 2013 is a U.S. Southern Command-sponsored, U.S. Army South-led, humanitarian and civic assistance exercise that was conducted from April to June 2013 in Panama.
As part of the exercise, troops specializing in engineering, construction and healthcare provided much needed services to communities while receiving valuable deployment training and building important relationships with partner nations.
In addition, the J9 Partnering Directorate coordinated over $66,000 worth of gifts-in-kind consisting of medical and school supplies donated by the non-governmental organizations, Hospital Sisters Mission Outreach and Midwest Mission Distribution Center. U.S. Army South G9 coordinated with the local chapter of the Veraguas Rotary Club to provide ten translators at the MEDRETE sites in Veraguas, Panama.
