Honduras: Other Military Units
Country Study > Chapter 5 > National Security > The Armed Forces > Other Military Units


A number of additional units and dependencies complement the major services. One consists of the centers of military instruction, which train both officers and enlisted personnel.

Finally, there are the reserves, which complement the activeduty armed forces and consist of standby and general reserve groups. The standby reserve consists of citizens who have completed active military service. The general reserve, which is poorly administered and offers very little military capability, is made up of all physically and mentally fit Honduran men who have not served in the military. The size of the standby reserve stood at 60,000 in 1990.
