VETRETE mission serves animal needs in Belize

U.S. Army Capt. Brian Joseph, veterinarian from the 149th Medical Detachment at Joint Base McChord Lewis, Wash., and a Belizean farmer restrain a pig receiving vaccinations during a veterinary readiness training exercise, or VETRETE, April 8, 2014, in Chunox, Belize. Goals of the VETRETE included providing ample training for U.S. and Belizean veterinary technicians, as well as to boost meat production of the local livestock. The VETRETE was held in conjunction with a medical readiness training exercise, or MEDRETE, which offered U.S. and Canadian military doctors and nurses the opportunity to train and interact with their Belizean counterparts while providing medical care to the community.
