Recent aerial shots of Fort Clayton

On November 30, 1999 the US flag flew for the last time at Ft. Clayton.  On December 1 at a ceremoney attended by President Mireya Moscoso, US Ambassador Simon Ferro, the outgoing US Army Commander Colonel Shuman, and other high ranking Panamanian officials, the Panamanian flag was raised by itself at this last US military installation in the former Canal Zone.  Colonel Shuman presented President Moscoso a large ceremonial key along with the two flags that had flown jointly the previous day.  This turnover of Fort Clayton and Corozal marks the end of the long and distinguished role the United States Military has played in the defense of the Panama Canal.
