Salvadoran president Tony Saca visited the country's troops in Iraq yesterday. According to the AP:
Salvadoran President Tony Saca paid a surprise visit Wednesday to his country's troops in Iraq and later said they were in good health and high spirits.
"I want to tell the Salvadoran people that morale was very high," Saca said in a statement after he spoke to soldiers in Kut.
Salvadoran troops are doing peacekeeping and humanitarian work in the southern city. With about 380 soldiers, El Salvador is the only Latin American nation still part of the U.S.-led coalition in Iraq. Honduras, Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic have withdrawn troops.
Saca, who was dressed in sand-colored military garb, became the first civilian president of El Salvador to wear the uniform of a commander general of the armed forces, according to LaPrensa. LaPrensa has a photo gallery of the visit here.
