PANAMA III
Lucho Azcarraga was born on January 1st, 1912 in Panama City, Panama. When he was 6 months old, he contracted polio which caused atrophy to his left leg. Instead of this becoming an obstacle for him, he learned to manage his disability to his advantage and was able to work wonders with the organ pedals. 
His musical career began at the age of 8 when he started playing an old piano at home. His sister America discovered his musical abilities and taught him his first music lessons. He passed away 11 November 1996 at the age of 84. He was noted for his Organ Orchestra ensemble. 

ALBROOK AIR FORCE BASE was not active as an air base during my tenure. It was too small and had been replaced by HOWARD AFB on the other side of the canal. Now Albrook is site of Panama's domestic airport--most domestic flites leave from here. 
I was chief of the Weapons Team of the Infantry Committee. My 5 Puerto Rican NCO'S and Capt Vidal. my Guest Instructor (all native speakers of Spanish) did the classes on nomenclature, disassembly and reassembly of the weapons. I and Capt Oneto did the instruction on weapons employment and we conducted the actual range firing.

Our infantry Officers Company Grade Course had officers from throughout Latin America plus we trained military academy cadets from Bolivia and Nicaragua--we got them for their last year of training. These cadets also lived in the Infantry Committee area. The Infantry Officers lived in the BOQ'S that were maintained by the Student Company.

There was also a Tactics Team, headed by a US Army Major and a Capt as his assistant. They conducted large scale tactical exericises and I and my instructors would assist them.  
I spent a lot of time in the Panamanian jungle!
