In conjunction with other IDA work on Latin America about the challenges facing the region and the kinds of activities the U.S. Army has pursued there, this paper describes the type of U. S. Army forces that have historically been used in these efforts, and the implications of personnel and budgetary reductions. In addition, it assesses constraints that can affect U.S. Army activities such as the role of U.S. and Latin American public opinion, the effects of activities by the U.S. Congress, and the challenge of interagency cooperation.
