24th Operations Group holds inactivation ceremony


Story by Staff Sgt. John B. Dendy IV
24th Wing Public Affairs Office
HOWARD AFB - The 24th Operations Group was
inactivated in a ceremony Tuesday at Howard AFB.
The Group's forces provided the nation with a central
point for the myriad of aircraft needed to operate with
safety, security and efficiency in the Western Hemi-
sphere south of Mexico.
At its height just a few months ago, the Group con-
trolled the flying activities of permanently stationed and
rotational active-and-reserve forces supporting
intratheater airlift, counterdrug, disaster relief, search
and rescue, nation building, and other unilateral or joint
missions as directed by CINCSOUTH.
Aircraft controlled through the Group included C-
27A and C-130 airlifters, C-21 operational support air-
craft, F-16 and F-15 fighters, E-3 AWACS, and KC-
135 tanker aircraft. The Group also operated a Joint Air
Operations Center and ground-based radar stations to


enhance command and control and safety for all U.S.
flight operations within the region.
Among the attendees at the inactivation were repre-
sentatives from Panama's aviation industry and Special
Operations Command-South members supported by the
group's airmen over the years.
The Group's lineage starts with Hap Arnold as its
first commander. Eighty-two years later, the unit has
undergone another inactivation to accommodate
changes in U.S. military requirements and the pullout
from Panama in 1999.
"What began in 1917 under the father of our Air
Force ends 82 years, two months and three days later
with the departure of aircraft and the furling of a flag
under the capable hand of Col. Dave Scott. Our airmen
have excelled in the sky and other areas to perform a
dizzying array of missions across a full spectrum of
airpower," said Col. Gregory L. Trebon, 24th Wing com-
mander and senior official for the ceremony.


"This memory and opportunity will not come again,"
he said. "Now I stand before a winning team that in-
cludes others who have recently departed Panama. Isn't
it a privilege to witness history, being part of such a
small team with such a great impact? How many can say
they have helped save hundreds of thousands of lives?
How many can say they have impaired the lives of bad
people who would put drugs into the hands of so many
Americans?
"I hope that you will vividly recall that your history
was not made by the buildings you worked from, or the
runways you flew from, but the human beings---civilian
and military professionals-who fill the pages of a new
book: Airpower in Panama 1917-1999, A Legacy of Ser-
vice to Country. The book must be dedicated to the 48
teammates who did not return to fly and live another
day.
"Time will allow each of you to place in perspective

Trebon receives honorary chief status


story and photo by Staff Sgt. John B. Dendy IV
24th Wing Public Affairs Office
HOWARD AFB - The Panama Chiefs Group held
an honorary chief master sergeant induction ceremony
recently for Col. Gregory L. Trebon, 24th Wing com-
mander. For more than 40 years, Air Force chiefs have
recognized superior leaders by inducting those leaders
as honorary chiefs, said 24th Wing Command Chief
Master Sgt. Curt Brownhill, who served as host chief
for the induction.
"Consideration for this status is a significant matter
which chiefs do not take lightly or advocate freely . . .
The selection process is very, very stringent,"
Brownhill said. "The rare privilege of becoming an hon-
orary chief master sergeant is reserved for the very few
leaders who chief master sergeants would allow to be
one of their own. We looked at him from a one-percent-
of-the-Air Force enlisted force perspective.
"Our wing commander was inducted, based on his
visionary leadership, support for the enlisted corps,
and command actions that have Team Howard,"
Brownhill told invited key base personnel and local
Army command sergeant majors. "We are fully pos-
tured for a historic redeployment due to Colonel
Trebon's leadership and guidance.
"What continuously impressed the chiefs and fur-
ther compelled them to consider Colonel Trebon for this


level of recognition was his unparalleled determination
to strengthen our enlisted force ... to reinforce that the
NCO is the guardian of the institution and the backbone
of the Air Force," Brownhill said. "This leader, this com-
mander, exemplifies and fully embodies our Air Force
core values of Integrity First, Service Before Self, and
Excellence In All We Do.
"It has been our distinct privilege to have been his
chief corps and to have served in his ranks," Brownhill
said on behalf of the Panama chiefs. "There was no
more fitting manner for us to properly recognize him
than to induct him as an honorary chief master ser-
geant."
The outgoing commander at Howard carries chief
status for life. Of all chiefly presentso" to signify
Trebon's induction, Chief Master Sgt. Ed Conner noted,
"Most important is his chief's coin. The chiefs strongly
recommended he carry it with him - at all times."
Trebon stood tall in his silver stripes and eagles
while accustoming himself to the rare professional sta-
tus. "Thank you for choosing me," he remarked to open
his acceptance statement. "It has been a great personal
privilege to serve with you in Panama - as your com-
mander and teammate - and now, as an honorary chief.
It's probably the rank that most clearly represents what
I think that a warrior should be."
Trebon became the Air Force's newest honorary

chief in a ceremony most may see only once in a career.
The Panama Chiefs corps came forward to help
Brownhill administer the oath and present the induction
certificate to Trebon. Brownhill accepted the chevrons
from the Chief-at-Arms - Chief Master Sgt. Don Funk
- before pinning the chevrons on Trebon's sleeves.
Trebon's top enlisted corps individually "tagged"
on the stripes and shook hands with the new chief. Oth-
ers similarly congratulating the colonel were his family
members, close advisers at Howard, senior and junior
NCOs, and civilian employees.

what has been achieved: allowing others to live and
prosper, while helping your teammates to accomplish
missions. You have earned the respect of your peers
and the admiration of your nation," Trebon con-
cluded.
Scott's next billet is as commander of the 6th Spe-
cial Operations Wing, Hurlburt Field, Fla. The career
special operator spoke with his forces about the
legacy of airmen under his leadership in Panama and
those who came before.
"We came here as a means of protecting the Ca-
nal, but we became a base for engagement in the re-
gion," the outgoing Group commander said.
He cited the many roles his unit has served, so
many that they cannot be represented on a single
gold and blue flying scarf, or military patch, worn by
the outfit's members.
"As we made plans for the reassignment of our
people, we continued to maintain support for
counterdrug, short-takeoff-and-landing aircraft, re-
connaissance, surveillance, interpreting, refueling,
fighters, four natural disasters, three ground-based
radar sites, one potential noncombatant evacuation,
joint search and rescue, flight monitoring and air re-
connaissance," he said.
"Sixty days before inactivation we were the lead
element for Hurricane Mitch," said Scott, who also
served as the joint forces air component commander
during that massive crisis in Central America.
Scott's people joined others in the region in an ef-
fort to squeeze the most productivity from their
soon-to-be-ended deployment.
"We delivered relief to El Salvador on the way to
the boneyard and we helped after the earthquake in
Colombia. The AWACS soared to 100-percent capa-
bility in the fall. Coronet Nighthawk expanded its ra-
dius 55 percent. Search and rescue enhanced our ca-
pabilities through exercises in the region. A small
army of people cut the bird strike threat (on Howard's
airfield) to zero. We received the Air Combat Com-


mand Flight Safety Award, and extended our opera-
tions five months beyond the original departure
date."
Scott attributed the achievements of his airmen to
"Talent, tenacity and hard work by professionals


who fought off any FIGMO mindset. Now it's time to
go our separate ways."
The inactivation ceremony ended with the brisk
furling, casing and whisking away of the 24th Opera-
tions Group flag.

Important information on Pet abandonment control


COROZAL (Veterinary Treatment Fa-
cility) - Pet animal transportation is the
issue that has received the most atten-
tion to date due to the departure of mili-
tary families from Panama.
The command has worked hard to en-
sure a smooth departure for families and
their pets with the establishment of the
Theater Support Brigade Pet Liaison of-
fice, opening of the West Bank Veteri-
nary Clinic, instituting the one-step pet
out processing service with the coopera-
tion of Panama's Ministry of Agriculture
and Animal Husbandry Development
(MIDA), and home visits, if necessary,
for the 48-hour examination for the re-
quired health certificate.
However, another animal issue -
stray and abandoned animal control,
must now be addressed.
A three-phased plan has been estab-
lished for dealing with the problem and
will be executed over the next six months
in order to deal with unique aspects of
the drawdown.
Phase I
Phase I will take place from now
through July 31. The Corozal Treatment
Facility (VTF) will accept animals from
service members who are unable to ship
their pets to their next duty station and
desire to place the animal for adoption.
The owner will incur no charges, but
must agree to sign a release for disposal
of the pet should adoption efforts fail.
Pet owners who cannot ship their ani-
mals should also consider placing a
"Give-Away" ad in the Tropic Times.
During this phase, there will be in-
creased attention given to apprehending
abandoned pet animals that have not


been turned in by owners. As such, en-
gineers will continue to keep stray cats
and dogs from crawl spaces and other
harborages around buildings.
Phase H
Phase II will be Aug. 1 - 31. At this
time, most families will have departed
Panama, leaving little risk that a family
pet will be confused with truly stray cats
or dogs. The number of abandoned pets
will be decreasing, but the number of feral
cats will most likely show an increase as
their food sources disap-
pear.


During this phase, con-
tractors from the Directorate
of Engineering and Housing
with assistance from the
Corozal VTF, will begin us-
ing humane live traps to ap-
prehend feral cats. Animals
that are collected in this way
will be thoroughly checked
for identification, that is:
collar and tags or microchip
(scanned with a microchip
reader). Unidentified ani-
mals will be disposed of if
they remain unclaimed after
the three working-day wait-
ing period.
Phase III
Phase III will be in effect
from September through De-
cember of 1999.
During this time, feral cat
control and bona fide stray/
lost pet confinement will be
necessary until final clo-
sure. Although the Corozal
VTF will close on Aug. 31,


there will still be a stray animal control
facility. The U.S. Army South Treaty
Implementation Office has requested
continued use of the Corozal stray ani-
mal facility through the remainder of
1999. Humane trapping will continue in
order to keep stray animals from becom-
ing a nuisance.
After Sept. 1, 1999, departing pet own-
ers will still be able to get health certifi-
cate examinations through a temporary
veterinary facility located in West


Corozal, but routine pet care will be avail-
able only from local Panamanian veteri-
narians. A roster of English-speakingsvet-
erinarians is available upon request at
the Corozal VTF.
Pet abandonment is unacceptable.
Service members who abandon pets will
be subject to UCMJ action. There are
humane alternatives that will prevent
needless suffering to pets which at one
time gave unconditional love to their
owners.

Health Care Advisory Council has


last meeting on Fort Clayton


story and photo by Charles S. McElroy
Tropic Times staff
FORT CLAYTON - The Health Care Advisory
Council met on May 24th for their last monthly con-
sumer advisory meeting wherein Col. Terrence
O'Neil, 24th Medical Group commander, presented
measures being taken to address the needs of active
duty military personnel, family members, and retired
military during these last months of the military draw-
down.
O'Neil reported that both the Fort Clayton Medi-
cal Clinic and the Howard AFB Main Clinic continue
to provide outpatient care only. All inpatient admis-
sions are now being done at civilian facilities in
Panama City under TRICARE auspices.
Emergency ambulance service primary response is
being provided as of May 1st on Fort Clayton by
ALERTA ambulance services, and the same will oc-
cur on June 1st on Howard AFB. "ALERTA, operat-
ing in Panama since 1993, was awarded the military's
contract," O'Neil said, "after demonstrating superior
performance in emergency care service and demon-
strating the ability to meet or exceed military stan-
dards for emergency medical assistance.
Aside from being required to provide high-quality
service, ALERTA's response time to emergency calls
has been exceptional. There will be one ambulance
stationed on Fort Clayton and one at Howard, and a
military ambulance will be in-place as a reserve on
each base. Random inspections have found
ALERTA's readiness to be exemplary."
Also announced at the meeting was the fact that
routine aeromedical evacuation flights ended May
26th. Until base closure, flights will now be available
only on a truly emergency, medical-needs basis.
O'Neil said that the need for orthopedic surgery
and physical therapy have decreased during the last
few months due to the drawdown, and orthopedic
surgery is no longer available since the closure of the
inpatient facility on Howard.
However, immediate attention for orthopedic emer-
gencies is being provided by the dual-licensed ortho-
pedic professionals at Centro Medico Paitilla and at
Clinica San Fernando, in Panama City. O'Neil said
that patients with orthopedic conditions requiring
long-terfn rehabilitation after surgery should be re-
deployed to their new duty stations and receive
treatment and rehabilitative therapy there.


The Family Advocacy Program has also seen a
decrease in visitors. O'Neil said that the few cases
attended to are mostly stress related situations stem-
ming from redeployment.
O'Neil also said that although emergency psycho-
logical assistance will still be available on base until
the end of July, those individuals needing long-term
mental health care should be redeployed stateside
now. One of the Family Advocacy Program psy-
chologists has already departed, another will leave

mander, addresses the measures being taken

sonnel, family members and retired military

down.


mid-June, and another will remain for urgent needs
until the end of July.
"A situation that needs careful planning is preg-
nancy," said O'Neil. "Beginning June 1st, the Com-
mander in Chief of SOUTHCOM has directed all preg-
nant active duty personnel out of the AOR. It is
strongly recommended that pregnant family members
also depart for stateside."
Although pre-natal care is available downtown,
documentation is different, and all personnel are re-
minded that the airlines may refuse travel and expo-
sure to high altitude oxygen deficiency in an emer-
gency. O'Neil went on to say that those marrying
and assuming new family members, some of whom
may be pregnant, need to be aware that on-base pre-
natal care is being phased down based on projected
decreases in the family member population and the
CINC's directive.
Dental care continues to be available at Howard
AFB and also at Fort Clayton. However, as Building
519 is readied for closure, the dental personnel are
being phased over to the Howard facility.
TRICARE will continue to be available in Panama
even after the military installations. However, retired
personnel and family members will not be able to re-
ceive any care on-base (except for life threatening
emergencies) after Sept. 1st when the clinic transi-
tions to a troop medical clinic. Retirees are strongly
urged to get civilian health insurance or return state-
side where they can be eligible to join TRICARE
Prime until age 65; MEDICARE is available for those
age 65 and above.
Finally, O'Neil said that routine medical prescrip-
tions can be refilled for up to 90 days for those pa-
tients who will be staying at an intermediate location
enroute to their next duty station. The patient's pri-
mary care managers will issue a prescription for the
additional supply of medication to those with this
special need.
O'Neil stated that the dissemination of informa-
tion on TRICARE regarding the drawdown and
preparations to meet the community's medical needs
appeared to have been quite effective, judging from
the very few questions and problems encountered so
far by persons re-deploying.
Should anyone have questions, they are urged to
call the TRICARE offices at Fort Clayton, Building 519
(288-5758 / 4152) or Howard AFB (284-4417 / 6977).


DCSINT utilizes personality profiles for


adaption, better team building


story and photo by
Charles S. McElroy
Tropic Times Staff
FORT CLAYTON - Personnel of
the U.S. Army South Office of the
Deputy Chief of Staff, Intelligence par-
ticipated in an evaluation of their indi-
vidual personality profiles on May 27th
as part of that office's effort to maximize
redeployment opportunities and make
the transition to their new duty station
easier. The meeting was held at the Fort
Clayton Community Club.
Col. Richard F. Riccardelli, Deputy
Cheif of Staff, Intelligence, said the Per-
sonality Profile System can help super-
visors and personnel members to more
easily adapt to the new environment of
their new duty station and also create
better team-building strategies to meet
the objectives of their new jobs.
"If you know yourself you are better
able to control your environment," said
Lucia Acevedo, director of the Alcohol
and Drug Abuse Prevention/Control
Program which delivered the PPS test to
the 40 volunteer respondents.
Psychologist Carl Jung first devel-
oped personality profiles in the 1920s.


Since the 1970s, PPS has become very
popular and widely used for team build-
ing in corporate America. Companies
that have widely used personality profil-
ing are AT&T, 3M, Apple, Citicorp,
Exxon, Honeywell and General Electric.
"Personality profiles have been used
at the War College and the Department of
the Army schools, " said Riccardelli. "It's
the first time personality profiling has
been used with an Army unit in Panama."
The PPS takes about 20 minutes to
administer and it can be self-scored. Four
personality traits are measured which
give an accurate indication as to how
people shape their environment - domi-
nance, influence, steadiness, and consci-
entiousness. Everyone has all of these
traits to some degree, but some may be
more present than others. PPS results are
easily obtained and interpreted to yield a
complex personality profile.
Outcomes can be used to help work-
ing groups discover motivational factors
which are unique to the group's person-
ality make-up.
"DCSINT will use the results to help
supervisors assign tasks," said
Riccardelli. "If we know the personality of


each personnel member, we can assign
tasks they are more motivated to accom-
plish. In addition, we can create working
groups from individuals who compliment
each other's abilities and get the job done
more efficiently." These kinds of tests help
gauge what kind of person is well-suited
to specific responsibilities and choose
team members who have complimentary
� ;.- : -


strengths. Riccardelli went on to say, "We
are using this system to start a team-
building process that will continue once
we are at Fort Buchanan."
Each participant said the personality
profile was right on target, and they are all
looking forward to new work assignments
and the prospect of'being a better team
player.


Volunteers from DCSINT meet at the Clayton Community Center to interpret
results of personality profiles.

FORT KOBBE - May 27 brought an end to the
Fort Kobbe dining facility, known as Castle Heights
Restaurant and located at Building 805. Sgt. 1st
Class Michael Home, dining facility manager, was on
hand to greet guests who waited in line for their final
consumption of some of the traditional and appetiz-
ing meals for which this facility is recognized.

that more than one million servicemen and women have died de-
fending our liberties, I am touched, moved and awed by their sacri-
fice.'

'Most of you have chosen, of your own free will and choice, to fol-

President Clinton's

Memorial Day Proclamation
Read by the Honorable Simon Ferro, U.S. Ambassador
to Panama.

The challenges to our Nation's peace and freedom
are as old as American history and as new as today's
headlines. They have taken many forms through the
years, from the bitter discord of civil war at home to the
aggression of tyrants abroad. But the price of peace
and freedom has always remained the same: the service
and sacrifice of our young men and women in uniform.
Looking back across the decades, we marvel at the
valor and determination of these gallant Americans
who, in each generation, have stepped forward to pre-
serve our freedom, defend our democracy. uphold our
ideals, and protect our interests. The battles in which
they fought and died - Brandywine. Gettysburg. San
Juan Hill. Belleau Wood, Coral Sea. Inchon. Khe Sahn -
are a testament to uncommon courage and indomitable
spirit. Those who survived were forever changed.
Those who died stay forever young in their loved ones'
memories. Their final thoughts most likely were of home
and family: their final actions purchased the freedom we
enjoy today.
Now. on Memorial Day. our thoughts turn to them.
We remember with profound gratitude those who took
to the seas and skies in moments of peril for our Nation.
We remember those who marched through mud or rice
paddies. snow or sand. because they knew. as President
Eisenhower reminded us, that "a soldier's pack is not
so heavy a burden as a prisoner's chains" and that true
peace is won only by those willing to die for it. We re-
member those in the Normandy American Cemetery
overlooking Omaha Beach who, 55 years ago, relit the
torch of freedom in a war-weary Europe. We remember
those whose final resting place is unknown., but whose
sacrifice is known to us all. The passing of time and the
blessings of peace and prosperity can never make us
forget what these brave Americans endured and what
they lost so that right would triumph, freedom would
survive, and our Nation would prevail.
In honor of all the courageous men and women who
gave their lives in defense of our Nation and our funda-
mental ideals, I ask that every American say a prayer for
lasting peace on this Memorial Day. I ask that every
American remember our heroic war dead in some special
way, whether by placing flowers on a veteran's grave,
lighting a candle, observing a moment of silence, or say-
ing a prayer of thanks. While we can never fully repay
our debt to America's fallen warriors, we can remember
their service and honor their sacrifice.

24th Civil Engineer Squadron holds


Civilian Appreciation Day


by 1st Lt. Colleen Milligan
24th Civil Engineer Squadron
HOWARD AFB - The 24th Civil Engineer Squad-
ron leadership recently hosted a Civilian Appreciation
Day for their 150-plus civilian employees at Howard
AFB.
All civilian employees of the CES received their 24th
Wing and CES coins from senior base officials for excep-
tional work during Howard's last year of redeployment.
The unit commander, Lt. Col. Kerry Hunt, wanted to
ensure that all civilian members knew how much they
are appreciated before they leave. The event was an op-
portunity for the squadron's airmen to thank all of their
civilian counterparts for their effort. The date was cho-
sen because as the U.S. pullout from Panama nears,
more and more individuals are leaving finding new jobs
in Panama or redeploying.
"The whole purpose was to let our civilians that
have worked here for so many years, and sacrificing
right along with us, know that we appreciate them and
all of the sacrifices that they have made," said Hunt.
"We don't do that very much and we felt that it was
time to show our appreciation to them. We lost a sig-
nificant amount of people during the last reduction in
force and as I told them, 'you've seen commanders
come and go.' The one thing that remains constant is


the civilian work force, and we really appreciate all of
those years of service and sacrifice. Not only have they
done the Air Force well, but when our facilities are trans-
ferred to the government of Panama they will have done
something good for their country."
The day began with a ceremony to honor the most
recent CES retirees and welcome six retirees who left the
squadron more than 10 years ago. The retiree-returnees
represented nearly 200 years of service to the U.S., and
were presented with CES coins, and finally wing certifi-
cates from Col. Rob Jensik, 24th Wing vice-commander.
Guest speaker Eddie Willock, a civilian employee re-
tiree with 44 years of USAF service, spoke first in En-
glish and then in Spanish. Entertainment followed the
ceremony - first a CES slide show - then the
squadron's Margee McAlmon sang a version of "Only
You" to a standing ovation from fellow engineers. The
final entertainment and the highlight of the morning was
the group of typico dancers from Charles Darwin Bilin-
gual Institute in Panama.
The entertainment concluded with the children invit-
ing members of the squadron to dance on stage with
them, to the laughter of those assembled. Events con-
cluded with food, basketball, softball, dominoes and
horseshoes, all to the tune of Panamanian and Carib-
bean music.

Howard Emergency services change


by Capt. Beth Krier
24th Medical Group
HOWARD AFB - The 24th Medical Group has
contracted with Alerta Ambulance Service to ser-
vice the West Bank customers.
The Alerta ambulance services are part of the
Howard Urgent Care Clinic. Alerta members have
been supplementing ambulance service for Howard
and Fort Clayton over the past year. The con-
tracted ambulances are equipped with state-of-
the-art medical equipment and staffed by bilingual,
U.S. certified, National Registry of Emergency
Medical Technicians.
"With a continued large beneficiary population
on the ground, the ALERTA contract ambulance
service that has worked so well at Fort Clayton will
be moving to Howard effective June 1," said Col.
Gregory Trebon, 24th Wing commander. "Military


clinics have been consolidated, utilizing all medical
technicians to increase the support-to-provider ra-
tio and increase clinic efficiency.
"EMT-trained military techs will provide backup
ambulance transport services, while ALERTA-
with an immediate ambulance change-out written
into their contract-will provide primary emergency
transport service based at the Howard Urgent Care
Clinic," Trebon said. "The high standard of care will
be guaranteed by the presence of a physician in
each ALERTA ambulance. The ALERTA ambu-
lances have been randomly inspected and found to
adhere to the same high equipment standards as Air
Force ambulances."
The steps to request an ambulance remain the
same. Call 281-HELP or 284-HELP and the response
plan will be put into action. For more information,

Keeping the peace in Bolivia

Representatives from nine nations learn about peacekeeping operations and each other


Story and photos by Spc. Kenneth K. Rockett

LA PAZ, Bolivia - More than 450 civilians and
military members from across the Americas said fare-
well to one another, and to two weeks of hard work, as
Exercise Peacekeeping Operations South 1999 (PKO
South '99) came to an end here May 28.
The Southern Command-sponsored exercise, which
began May 18, was designed to bring together military
representatives from South American armies as well
as officials from governmental and non-governmental
organizations (such as the United Nations and the Red


iK 1! t?


Cross) in order to cooperatively practice and perfect
peacekeeping operations through realistic computer
simulations.
In addition to the United States and the host nation
of Bolivia, seven other South American nations par-
ticipated in PKO South '99.
The simulated setting of the exercise was the ficti-
tious nation of Tarial, torn apart by a brutal civil war.
After a week of seminars and classes, exercise par-
ticipants entered the second week, prepared to work
together to bring a lasting peace to Tarial, all the while
sharing experiences and learning valuable peacekeep-


ing lessons.
Maj. Gen. Philip R. Kensinger Jr., U.S. Army South
commanding general, spoke at the closing ceremony
and said the exercise did a good job of not only im-
proving participant's peacekeeping knowledge, but
also helped everyone learn more about each other and
other countries, doctrines and operations systems.
"The end result (of the exercise)," Kensinger said, "is
that of improved coordination between the armed forces
of our respective countries and the peacekeeping forces.
of the United Nations. Furthermore, it has made us better
soldiers and better neighbors."

Yugoslavia accepts peace plan


BELGRADE, Yugoslavia (AP) - After more than 2
1/2 months of NATO airstrikes, Slobodan Milosevic's
government today accepted an international peace plan,
capitulating on Western demands to end the Kosovo
conflict.
The development came right after Serb lawmakers in
Belgrade overwhelmingly approved a peace deal to re-
solve the crisis and allow the return of more than
850,000 ethnic Albanians to Kosovo.
"Yugoslavia accepts the document for peace
brought by the highest representatives of the European
Union and Russia," the state Tanjug news agency said
following talks between Milosevic, former Russian Pre-
mier Viktor Chernomyrdin and Finnish President Martti
Ahtisaari.
Even amid news of peace in the making, NATO jets
launched attacks at communication facilities and fuel
depots in Kosovo and elsewhere in Yugoslavia.
Serbian state media reported that two people were
seriously wounded in the attack on a Naftagas fuel de-
pot near Sombor, close to the border with Hungary.
The government said in its statement that the peace
plan accepted by it and the Serbian assembly confirms
the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Yugoslavia
and the role of the United Nations in bringing peace to
the region.
The decisions, however, do not mean NATO will
stop the bombing right away. The plan provides for a
series of steps, including a verifiable withdrawal of Serb
forces from Kosovo, after which NATO will halt the
aerial attacks that began March 24.
The plan would also require the return of all the eth-
nic Albanian refugees expelled - mostly to Albania
and Macedonia - since March.
NATO had no immediate comment except to say its
air operations would continue while it awaited a brief-
ing from Ahtisaari.
Finland Prime Minister Paavo Lipponen told report-
ers at the EU summit in Cologne, Germany, that the
agreement "will be subject to confirmation from all
those involved, including the European Union. It's too


serious to start partying yet."
A text of the statement on the peace plan that was
distributed in the Serb parliament showed Milosevic
was forced to accept NATO terms on a broad range of
issues.
Among those: quick and verifiable withdrawal of
Yugoslav army and Serb forces from Kosovo; deploy-
ment to Kosovo of an "efficient" - shorthand for well-
armed - force "with essential NATO participation"
under "unified control"; and "substantial autonomy"
for the majority ethnic Albanians of Kosovo.
NATO military spokesman Col. Konrad Freytag said
Serb forces will also be responsible for clearing the land
mines they planted in Kosovo during their campaign to
drive out ethnic Albanians and push back the Kosovo
Liberation Army.
Some 16,000 NATO troops, to be part of a peace-
keeping force for Kosovo, are already deployed in
Macedonia; NATO and partner countries on Wednes-
day agreed to raise this figure nearly twice as high, to
47,900 - including 7,000 U.S. troops.
The Serb Radical Party, which had backed the gov-
ernment until today, broke away to vote against the
peace plan that passed 136-74.
"We voted against this deal because we believe that
the withdrawal of our troops from Kosovo amid NATO
criminal bombardment is unacceptable," said Serbian
deputy premier Vojislav Seselj, leader of the Serb Radi-
cal Party.
"We shall not sit in the government and await the
arrival of NATO troops into Kosovo," Seselj said in an-
nouncing his faction was withdrawing its support of
President Milosevic's government.
Clinton administration officials took a cautious ap-
proach, saying they wanted to hear from Ahtisaari, who
will brief U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Strobe Talbott
in Bonn, Germany.
The approval comes one day after a major diplomatic
push in the Yugoslav capital, which represented the
West's first official contact with the Belgrade leader-
ship since the NATO campaign began.


It was also the first time Russia, Yugoslavia's main ally,
has been largely in step with the Western powers.
Authorities have consistently demanded that any
deal respect Yugoslav borders - shorthand for their re-
jection of independence for Kosovo - and that the
United Nations be given a role in overseeing a Kosovo
peace.
The plan the assembly voted for, sources said, calls
for "substantial withdrawal of Serb forces ... deploy-
ment of peacekeeping troops in Kosovo," and civilian
Yugoslav authorities manning posts on the Albanian
and Macedonian borders.
Previous assembly sessions, including one March 23
that rejected a Kosovo peace deal, were televised na-
tionally. But today's special session was closed so pre-
cise details were initially hard to come by.
Parliament's endorsement of the plan showed
Milosevic was willing to accept what the West says is a
take-it-or-leave-it deal in which he must pull all Serb
forces out of Kosovo and allow a NATO-led peacekeep-
ing force into the embattled Serbian province.
Milosevic met for less than two hours with
Chernomyrdin and Ahtisaari this morning.
Just minutes before the envoys' talks with Milosevic
began today, air raid sirens sounded in Belgrade - sig-
naling the alliance's determination to keep up the pres-
sure.
"What is essential is that the military action contin-
ues," British Prime Minister Tony Blair said, warning
Milosevic that NATO demands were not negotiable.
NATO bombardments overnight struck particularly hard
the area of Mount Pastrik near the Albanian border,
where Serb forces have been attacking a supply corri-
dor opened by the KLA.
Chernomyrdin was quoted as saying the agree-
ment calls for Yugoslavia and NATO to work out a for-
mula for the withdrawal of Serbian troops from Kosovo.
The United States and its NATO allies have called for
their troops to be "at the core" of a peacekeeping
force, something Milosevic previously rejected.


The final flight
Co-workers, family members and friends gathered to wave ..
goodbye to Company C of the 1st Battalion, 228th Aviation
Regiment soldiers departing to Honduras in two UH-60
Blackhawks and three CH-47 Chinook Helicopters
Wednesday on Fort Kobbe's runway. The departure from
Fort Kobbe marked the end of all air operations in Panama
for Co. C, 1/228th. The company will establish operations I
in Honduras after a change of command ceremony in
which the company will be renamed Co. B, 1/228th. Before
their journey to Honduras, cadre made a final farewell to
U.S. Army South. The two Blackhawks and three Chinooks
flew over Building 95 on Fort Clayton, the Bridge of the
Americas and then back over Fort Kobbe for a final wave
goodbye. Sugarbears, you will be missed.

Costa Rica's Golfito: wild


and filled with diversity


story and photos by Charles S. McElroy
Tropic Times Staff
GOLFITO (COSTA RICA) - It certainly looks like
a place author Joseph Conrad would have described
as "one of the four corners of the earth." The Costa
Rican town of Golfito is remote and out the way,
except for the fact there are more than 1,500 websites
devoted to its history, ecology, and vacation resort
attractions.
The small town of Golfito is a big sport fishing
destination, the home of the most beautiful, unspoiled
beaches in Costa Rica, and the starting off point to
experience the Osa Peninsula which National Geo-
graphic describes as the most biologically intense
place on earth. Golfito is big on adventure tourism.
The town's proximity to Corcovado National Park
and Amistad National Park make it a favorite spot for
observing nature's beauty in its most pristine and
undisturbed state. It's natural beauty is so renowned
that it's a favorite place for conservationists, and
stateside universities have summer-long tropical
studies programs that take advantage of all the
secrets of nature this place has to offer.
Golfito's population is almost as diverse as the
ecology that surrounds it. "So many foreigners have
made their way to Golfito it's hard to call it a Costa
Rican town," says Sam Burch. Burch is the co-owner
of La Dama del Delfin, a tour guide service that's also
a restaurant and bar that overlooks Golfo Dulce. A
retired American business executive, Burch sports his
Uncle Sam costume each and every 4th of July. "I'm a
goodwill ambassador," says Burch. He's entertained


kids all the way from Buckingham, Pa. to the U.S.
ambassador's home in San Jose, Costa Rica.
Englishman Shane Acton says, "Once you experi-
ence the beauty and tranquility of this place, it kind of
takes over." Acton is the manager of the Banana Bay
Marina which gives safe harbor to yachts on their way
to and from the Panama Canal. Acton sailed his 18
foot boat around the world in the 1970s. Of all the
places he's been, he chose Golfito to write a book
about his travels.
The rainforest lends its diversity to ecotourism too,
and encourages the study of its flora and fauna by
professional and amateur ecologists alike. In a
backdrop of lush rainforest, Hotel Las Gaviotas is
located right on the bay, and rooms are very reason-
ably priced at $36 double occupancy. Rooms have a/c,
cable, balcony and patio, and each room overlooks the
water.
The hotel has ecological trips, kayaking, bird
watching excursions, scuba diving, biking, and
horseback riding (on living horses!!!). To find out
more about Las Gaviotas, you can access their web
site at http://www.orbitcostarica.com/lasgaviotas.
Getting to Golfito is easy whether you're flying or
driving. Charter flights can be arranged through the
Albrook airport. Prices are about $100 round trip per
passenger. If you want to travel the Pan-American
Highway and see a little of Panama's peaceful
countryside, that's an easy way to go too. The trip
takes about seven hours including the border cross-
ing at Paso Canoas. The Pan-American Highway is
four lanes much of the way and it's a great chance to
see Panama outside of city.

Scott's next billet is as commander of the 6th Special Operations Wing, Hurlburt Field, Fla. The career special operator spoke with his forces about the legacy of airmen under his leadership in Panama and those who came before. "We came here as a means of protecting the Canal, but we became a base for engagement in the region," the outgoing Group commander said. He cited the many roles his unit has served, so many that they cannot be represented on a single gold and blue flying scarf, or military patch, worn by the outfit's members. "As we made plans for the reassignment of our people, we continued to maintain support for counterdrug, short-takeoff-and-landing aircraft, reconnaissance, surveillance, interpreting, refueling, fighters, four natural disasters, three ground-based radar sites, one potential noncombatant evacuation, joint search and rescue, flight monitoring and air reconnaissance," he said. "Sixty days before inactivation we were the lead element for Hurricane Mitch," said Scott, who also served as the joint forces air component commander during that massive crisis in Central America. Scott's people joined others in the region in an effort to squeeze the most productivity from their soon-to-be-ended deployment. "We delivered relief to El Salvador on the way to the boneyard and we helped after the earthquake in Colombia. The AWACS soared to 100-percent capability in the fall.

The challenges to our Nation's peace and freedom tare as old as American history and as new as today's headlines. They have taken many forms through the years, from thebitter discord ofcivil war at home to the aggression of tyrants abroad. But the price of peace and freedom has always remained the same: the service and sacrifice of our young men and women in uniforn. Looking back across the decades, we marvel at the valor and determination of these gallant Americans who, in each generation, have stepped forward to preserve our freedom, defend our democracy, uphold our ideals, and protect our interests. The battles in which they fought and died -Brandywine, Gettysburg, San Juan Hill, Blleau Wood, Coral Sea, Inchon, Khe Sain are a testament to uncommon courage and indomitable spirit. Those who survived were forever changed. Those who died stay forever young in their loved ones' memories. eir final thoughts most likely were of home and family; their final actions purchased the freedom we enjoy today. Now, on Memorial Day, our thoughts turn to them. We remember with profound gratitude those who took to the seas and skies in moments of peril for our Nation.
