Most nations have some sort of army, and probably a navy and air force as well. Honduras is no exception.
But Honduras has quite the history of the armed forces being very active in the government. Unlike the U.S. and other countries, there have been many military coups - which means that elements in the military took over the government, ousted the president, and put a general or other military leader into the leadership role of the whole country.
On this date in 1956, as a matter of fact, was one such military coup.
|Honduras is located in Central America.|
Honduras re-established a non-military government (aka civilian government) in 1979, although it continues to be fairly unstable. It's one of the poorest nations in the Americas.
Still, as with all countries, there are some wonderful things about Honduras:
|Lovely scenery, including beautiful |
beaches and waterfalls
|Resorts and diving|
|Wildlife, including the endangered|
|Colorful culture and fruit|
|And of course, the people!|
