Abstract:

A new Panama Canal treaty between the US and Panama will provide for a joint defense of the Panama Canal by US and Panamanian military forces. The history of the defense of the Panama Canal by the US Army is traced and the role of the US Army in the defense of the Panama Canal in 1975 is discussed. Data were gathered by a literature search and personal observation of the author who has resided in the Canal Zone since 1957. A proposal and a forecast are made for a combined USPanama ground defense force comprised of elements of the 193d Infantry Brigade Canal Zone and the Guardia Nacional. Author
