PANAMAX 2012 Spotlight with Senior Master Sgt. Jason Beaudoin

DAVIS-MONTHAN AIR FORCE BASE, Ariz. – Senior Master Sgt. Jason Beaudoin was the superintendant for the A1 Personnel cell for PANAMAX 2012 at Air Forces Southern, Aug. 6-17. PANAMAX is an annual United States Southern Command-sponsored exercise series that focuses on ensuring the defense of the Panama Canal. Forces from 17 nations took part in simulated training scenarios in the waters around the canal and other locations to include Davis-Monthan AFB, Ariz. The main focus of PANAMAX 2012 was to exercise a variety of responses at the request of the governments of Panama and Colombia to protect and guarantee safe passage of traffic through the Panama Canal, ensure its neutrality, and respect national sovereignty. This exercise was designed to execute stability operations under the support of United Nations Security Council Resolutions; provide interoperability training for the participating multinational staffs; and build participating nation capability to plan and execute complex multinational operations.
