Long history '-
For niany years USARSO served as the U.S. Southern
Command's Army component in this hemisphere, with an �
area of operation encompassing 32 sovereign nations in
Latin America and the Caribbean Basin.
The U.S. Army presence in Panama began in 1904 after
the signing of the 1903 treaty between the United States
and Panama which authorized the United States to build,
operate, maintain and defend the Panama Canal.
In 1911, the 10th Infantry was assigned to what was 1 .
then called the Panama Canal Zone with the mission of t -
maintaining law and order among the canal construction
force.
The Panama Canal opened in 1914, the same week that :
WWI broke out in Europe, and the U.S. Army was given -. .-i l
the important task of protecting this economically strategic
waterway. The importance of that task was amplified during
WWII and throughout Cold War.
On Dec. 4, 19�6, the U.S. Army South was activated as a file pho
major Army command and served as the headquarters for The long U.S. Army presence in Panama has encompassed many missions over the years, ir

USARSO's missions are among the most critical and challenging in military operations. Those
military operations include maintaining a high state of force readiness, defense of the Panama
Canal, support for democracy in Panama and throughout the region, military to military and
nation assistance programs, support for counter-drug initiatives and implementation of the
Panama Canal Treaties.

In addition to providing for the defense of the
Panama Canal, U.S. Army South is involved in
honing soldiers' combat and jungle operations
skills.

Joint Task Force South during Operation Just Cause.
Throughout its presence in Panama and in addition to
providing for the defense of the Panama Canal, USARSO
has been involved in honing soldiers' combat and jungle
operations skills and in supporting regional peacekeeping
initiatives.
Furthermore, USARSO has provided nation assistance
in the region, military-to-military training programs, and has
been a major component in counter-drug efforts.
A big part of the mission of USARSO has been its im-
mensely dedicated involvement in humanitarian assistance
and disaster relief operations.
USARSO's vast area of operations has provided an
ideal setting for National Guardsmen and Reservists to ap-
ply their training in building roads, bridges, schools, and
clinics.
The departure ceremony, to be held at 11 a.m. on July
30 at Fort Clayton's Soldier's Field, will truly mark the end
of an era.

LEA sneaks by Prosegur


32-31 in friendly hoop game


Story and photos by
Sgt. Paul Bouchard
Tropic Times Editor
FORT CLAYTON - A friendly hoop
game ended in a surprised fashion July
16 at Fort Clayton's Reeder Gym as a
team made up of Law Enforcement Activ-
ity soldiers edged out a team of security
guards working for the Prosegur firm 32-
31.
With 20 seconds left in the game, LEA
took the ball out after Prosegur center
Derrick Simmons converted on a three-
point play to make the score 32-31. Sur-
prisingly, that's how the game ended -
Prosegur did put some pressure on the
ball, but they didn't force a foul to get
ball possession. LEA simply dribbled
and passed the ball and wound down
the clock to the final buzzer.
"I was surprised they didn't foul us in
the end," said LEA player-coach
Michael Weatherholt. "We didn't play to
our expectations, but we won, and that's
what matters."
Weatherholt said the idea of having a
friendly basketball game with the
Prosegur security guards was "good for
relations" and "to get a little competition
going." Weatherholt said the idea came
from him and LEA players Solomon
Palmer and Edwin Rosario. Weatherholt
said Prosegur guards work closely with
LEA.
LEA started out the game with a run-
LEA's Solomon
Palmer was
heavily
guarded during
the game,
especially in
the second half
when LEA
worked the ball
down low in the
post. LEA won
the low scoring
game 32-31.
Surprisingly,
Prosegur didn't
force-foul LEA
to obtain the
ball back late in
the game -
LEA simply ran
the clock out.
LEA player-
coach Michael
Weatherholt
said it'a pos-
sible the teams
will meet again
in a friendly
hoop game
soon.

and-gun type of offense. At halftime, the
score was 16-15 in favor of Prosegur.
During a halftime interview,
Weatherholt said his team -will "try to
work the ball more to our big guys down
low."
Second-half play did reflect that, as
both teams tried to control the tempo of
the game. The teams basically traded
baskets all the way to the end - the


score was 21-21 with 12:41 left and 26-26
with 3:40 left.
LEA was led by Weatherholt, Palmer
and good outside shooting from
Jonathan Dean and Roy Shaffer.
Prosegur was led by Derick Simmons
and Norbeto Stow.
Weatherholt said that another game
between the two teams may occur in the
next couple of weeks.

U.S. Army South donates equipment,

educational materials to Panama


Donation


given to augment


unexploded ordnance awareness.
story and photos by Carmela Lowe Gobern
Tropic Times Staff
ANCON - Educational materials and equipment for
increasing awareness and identification of unexploded
ordnance were recently donated to the Panamanian
government by U.S. Army South.
At a brief ceremony, which took place at the
former Gorgas Hospital complex on Monday, Col.
Robert C. Scharling, USARSO Deputy Chief of Staff
for Civil Military Operations, presented the equipment
to Dr. Dora W. de Da Costa, national director for the
Promotion of Health, Panama Ministry of Health.
This donation concluded a series of activities which
included seminars, informative videotapes and slide
presentations, all designed to help Panamanian com-
munities with unexploded ordnance awareness.
The familiarization course, a bilateral program
which came about from the cooperation of both U.S.
and Panamanian officials, addresses the need for com-
munity leaders to educate their citizens on the hazards
of unexploded ordnance and offer a risk management
plan to ensure everyone's safety.
The donated material and equipment included two
vehicles, 10 television sets, 10 VCRs, tables for ac-
commodating the television and video equipment,
17,000 coloring books, posters and flyers.
The informative coloring books, printed in the Span-
ish language with sample drawings and methods of
identifying unexploded bombs, projectiles, rockets and
grenades, will be distributed to children who are more
prone to innocently pick up a curious object.
The donated materials are designed to educate and
orient the people of the small towns in areas adjacent to
former firing ranges on the danger of unexploded ord-
nance, and to teach them how to recognize those dan-
gers. The basic steps in the protection against
unexploded ordnance are:
*Identifying the unexploded ordnance.
*Avoiding any direct contact with the unexploded
ordnance (it should not be touched).
*Isolating the unexploded ordnance by marking the
area where it is discovered.
*Notifying the proper authorities by calling the
Panama Police at telephone 104 or the Ministry of
Health at telephone 211-1897 or 232-5132.


Col. Robert C. Scharling,
USARSO Deputy Chief of
Staff for Civil Military
Operations, made the
formal donation of educa-
tional materials and
'0 4l ^equipment to Panama to
increase awareness of
unexploded ordnance.
The donation was re-
ceived on behalf of the
Panama Ministry of Health
by Dr. Dora W. de Da
Costa, national director
for the Promotion of
Health. This donation
concluded a series of
educational activities
including seminars,
informative videotapes
and slide presentations,
all designed to help
Panamanian communities
with unexploded ord-
- nance awareness.

The U.S. Army presence in Panama began in 1904 after the signing of the 1903 treaty between the United States and Panama which authorized the United States to build, operate, maintain and defend the Panama Canal. In 1911, the 10th Infantry was assigned to what was then called the Panama Canal Zone with the mission of maintaining law and order among the canal construction force. The Panama Canal opened in 1914, the same week that WWI broke out in Europe, and the U.S. Army was given the important task of protecting this economically strategic waterway. The importance of that task was amplified during WWII and throughout Cold War. On Dec. 4, 19 6, the U.S. Army South was activated as a major Army command and served as the headquarters for The long U.S. Army presence in Panama has encompassed many missions over the years, inContinued on Page 2, see USARSO. cluding humanitarian and nation-assistance missions in Latin America and the Caribbean.
