Members of the Panamanian Public Forces and the 1st Battalion, 228th Aviation Regiment, a unit assigned to Joint Task Force Bravo, Soto Cano Air Base, Honduras, discuss operational details before fighting wildfires in the Darién province of Panama, April 17, 2016. During the operation, Panamanian and U.S. command and control elements reviewed inputs from the ground forces and surveillance from air assets to determine where the fire, which had split into hundreds of separate fires, needed the most attention.
