Haven't heard about that? I bet you haven't. But, Don't worry let me explain to you.
'Fuerzas Comando' is an American multinational competition and when I say American it means America as continent. 'Fuerzas Comando' was born as an idea of USSC(United States Southern Command), the exercise is meant to build camaraderie and strengthen bonds between the countries involved to increase cooperation on common issues that affect the region. By training together, the participants gain a better understanding of each others’ tactics and capabilities, ensuring a more successful response to any situation.

The exercise is for Special Operations in the Military, skilled soldiers and police forces of each country like Peruvian Commandos, Kaibiles, Green Berets, Joint Task Force 2, GOPE's, Snipers, etc. In addition, Colombia has won the competition five times in the past nine years. Last year, two countries were competing for the first time – Canada and Guyana. Last year was also significant because it was the first time a female(From Mexico) competitor has participated in the competition. As there're many countries in the exercise(21 countries) the exercise is held in differents, the last one was in Colombia.
