Soldiers drop in at mile 27

Story Picture
If you were driving on the Western Highway near mile twenty-seven on Saturday morning, you may have been startled by the sight of soldiers dropping from the sky. Don’t worry, they weren’t Guatemalans. These paratroops were army personnel of the U.S. Southern Command carrying out a training exercise with the full permission of the Belize government. The operation had been postponed from earlier in the month by mechanical problems with the aircraft.
