As of mid-1997 some 1,100 US military personnel were on 40 separate deployments focusing on counter-drug missions in 11 Latin American countries. Approximately half of them are members of specialized training teams. But with 60,000 troops rotating through Southern Command in a given year, up to 17,000 personnel may engage in countering the drug trade at sometime in the region.

Directives from the President, Congress, and the DOD have resulted in an expanded role for military forces in attacking illegal drugs in every phase of their flow: at the source, in transit, and in the US. A major portion of the DOD counterdrug effort is conducted OCONUS, particularly in Central America and South America under the supervision of the CINC US Southern Command (USSOUTHCOM). The Department of State has primary oversight responsibilities for all support provided OCONUS. Military support to the national counterdrug effort requires deployment of appropriately trained and equipped members of the armed forces. The effort also requires continuing cooperation and coordination among the military and federal, state, and local drug law enforcement agencies (DLEAs)
