    El Salvador's military has had both Prussian and Third Reich trainers and advisors over the years. Even more recent Salvadorian armed forces joined the original "coalition" and saw action in the middle east and were noted for their bravery. Salvadorians also flew UN aid missions in Mali, among the most dangerous "countries" in africa Its discipline is unmatched in the region
