Panamanians Visit Missouri Guard

Members of the Panamanian military visited Rosecrans Air National Guard Base in St. Joseph, Mo., this week where they trained with airmen of the Missouri Air Guard’s 139th Airlift Wing and toured the base. This visit was part of the Missouri National Guard’s continuing partnership with Panama under the National Guard’s State Partnership Program. Among their activities during the July 10-12 visit, the Panamanians checked out the wing’s aircrew flight equipment shop and met with security forces airmen. CMSgt. Mark Frye, shop superintendent, said it was a great opportunity to get to know the Panamanians and share experiences. (St. Joseph report by MSgt. Mike R. Smith)
