Program cover for the U.S. Army South "Departure Ceremony" held at "Soldier's Field" Fort Clayton, (former) Canal Zone.  I have posted this image as an entrance to my latest presentation and  labor of love, "A Portrait of the Towns, Fort Clayton".  From it's very beginning to it's very end, this presentation is about one of the historic military bases that supported the defense of the Panama Canal.  I have only touched  the tip of a very large iceberg with this presentation and hope to add much more in the months/years to come.This presentation covers only the early years, mostly pre WWII.  Many thanks to George Chevalier for his personal knowledge and images that started this presentation.  Thanks to Bob Karrer and Vicente Pascual for their support with more historical images.  There are a little over 100 images in this presentation.  Kick back and take your time to enjoy this blast into our Zonian history.  Click the blue type above or visit the CZ Images, Photo Room, Military History of the Canal Zone section.
