Fourth Fleet Navy Reserve Sailors Support PANAMAX 2022
For more than 100 years, the Panama Canal has linked our world by bridging the divide between the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. Since its completion in 1914, the canal has been one of the most vital shipping routes on the planet with nearly 14,000 vessels making the transit every year. If the canal were to cease operations, the effects could dramatically impact the global economy. Protecting the canal isn’t solely the responsibility of the United States, but the responsibility of all nations that value free and open trade. This is the purpose of PANAMAX.
