Guatemalan Army Maj. Raul Pineda works alongside Maj. Brian Pederson, U.S. Army South Plans and Operations, at the Forward Command Post at Camp Bullis, Texas during PANAMAX 2009. "This is my first PANAMAX," said Pineda. "We are sharing a lot of information when we do this exercise with so many countries." PANAMAX 2009 is a multinational, joint forces exercise involving 20 countries and more than 4500 participants and observers exercising responses to any request from the Government of Panama to protect safe passage through the Panama Canal.
