    B-roll stringer of United States Service Members from the 203rd Red Horse Squadron out of the Virginia Air National Guard working alongside Salvadoran military personnel at Beyond the Horizon 2018 - El Salvador. This b-roll footage shows members of the 203rd RHS building a school at Canton Ulapa Arriba in the municipality of Zacatecoluca (pronounced Za-kah-te-co-lou-kah).

    The project is at the roofing and interior trimming stage, but some vertical construction of smaller annexes can be observed as well. The school will have three classrooms, a kitchen, bathroom and “a possible soccer field if time permits,” according to a project official. This is only one of five construction projects for this year’s BTH. The other projects include building another school from-the-ground-up plus extensions to two existing schools and an extension to the Zacatecoluca Health Clinic in the Department (similar to a US county) of La Paz.

    In addition to construction projects, U.S. Armed Forces, El Salvador's Ministry of Health and local host nation non-governmental organizations, like Operation Blessing, have conducted health clinics in which they have treated more than 15,000 patients to date.

    BTH 2018 incorporates nearly 1,800 U.S. service members with participation from all branches of service, Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines in addition to approximately 200 host nation troops. Service members provide medical assistance and engineering projects as part of the humanitarian/training exercise.

    BTH is an annual U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) mission, being led this year by the Puerto Rico National Guard's Joint Task Force Hope. BTH2018 - El Salvador, has been running since May 12, and is expected to conclude on August 4. (U.S. National Guard video by Staff Sgt. Angel Martinez)
