NEW HORIZONS Honduras 2015 personnel have been working closely with the Navy base to use their facility as a staging area for their equipment. “New Horizons is great for building partnership capacity. Special operations has a saying, “You only build support at the speed of trust,” and we can’t earn the trust of a whole other country without providing some help. Being able to support the local population with life sustaining and life enhancing opportunities it’s a great way to help build and build friendship,” said Sheedy. Sheedy also visited exercise personnel at the Honduras Aguan well site, Gabriela Mistral primary school construction site, and saw the Dr. Salvador Paredos Hospital.
