BARAHONA, Dominican Republic – Task Force Larimar, the headquarters element for Beyond the Horizon 2014 in the Dominican Republic, recognized 22 Dominican army soldiers for their assistance in providing security throughout the exercise in a June 5, 2014, ceremony at the 5th Infantry Brigade headquarters in Barahona, Dominican Republic.
“Without you, we would fail,” said Lt. Col. Christopher Dziubek, commander of Task Force Larimar, referring to the multitude of projects U.S. Army engineers are building across this island nation.
The projects include rebuilding schools and other infrastructure needs as well as medical and dental readiness training exercises across the Dominican Republic that provided access to world-class medical care to the Dominican people.
