Beyond the Horizon is a U.S. Southern Command sponsored, U.S. Army South planned and led annual humanitarian and civic assistance exercise. The exercise lasts for several months and provides construction and medical assistance to partner nations throughout the Central and South America and Caribbean region. The exercise generally takes place in rural,underprivileged areas and is a major component of the U.S. military's regional engagement efforts and it affords a unique opportunity to train U.S. service members alongside partner nation personnel, while providing needed services to communities throughout the region. BTH provides support through assessment, construction, and sustainment activities. Construction projects normally include schools, clinics, community centers, water wells, and other quality of life enhancement facilities for the host nation. At the same time, medical readiness exercises involving teams consisting of military doctors, nurses and dentists provide general and specialized health services to host nation citizens and military veterinarians provide basic care to the host nation's small farm and family animals.
