By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Belize Territorial Volunteers (BTV) jumped on a boat to Barranco on the last day of 2021 to cook up a barbeque for the Belize troops that guard our Southern border.
“We are going to prepare a little meal to show appreciation to the troops who defend the Southern border,” said Wil Maheia of the BTV to the media.
“To show appreciation for the fact that we could now come into the Southern waters and we are not confronted by Guatemalans.
“We want to applaud the Belize Defence Force and the Belize Coast Guard for doing a wonderful job. Usually, five or ten years ago, we come into these areas and we would be encountered by many Guatemalan fishing boats. Today the only boats that we encounter are Belizean fishing boats.
“So, we want to say ‘thank you’ to the troops, ‘thanks’ to the BDF and the Coast Guard for keeping our waters free of illegal fishing,” said Maheia.
The BTV shared a video of them heading to Barranco by boat and photographs of the barbeque and of them playing a football game with the troops.
