Guatemalan airman develops operational plans for PANAMAX 2012

DAVIS-MONTHAN AIR FORCE BASE, Ariz. – Col. Sergio Catalan, officer of operations for the Guatemalan air force, worked combat operations for PANAMAX 2012 with Air Forces Southern, Aug. 6-17. PANAMAX is an annual U.S. Southern Command-sponsored exercise that focuses on ensuring the defense of the Panama Canal. One of the most important benefits of multinational exercises like PANAMAX is the fact that all the participants are able to exchange their experiences, expertise gained new knowledge about each other’s culture and people. These interactions strengthen our bonds across the region and foster long-lasting friendships and an understanding among the partner nations, ultimately benefiting the security of the region.
