Excess Defense Articles: Trinidad & Tobago


The State Department's April 2002 FY2003 Congressional Budget Justification for Foreign Operations reported that Excess Defense Articles for Trinidad and Tobago would be used "to support CARICOMís [Caribbean Community] role as a stabilizing force in the Caribbean through active involvement in peacekeeping operations, search-and-rescue missions, disaster relief, and counternarcotics operations. EDA will also aid in enhancing interoperability in U.S.-Caribbean joint exercises."1

The February 2005 Congressional Presentation was more concise, indicating that EDA for Trinidad and Tobago will be used to "enhance the TTDF’s peacekeeping, search-and-rescue, disaster relief, and counternarcotics capabilities." [2]
