From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Inter-American Peace Force was established, by the Organization of American States, on 23 May 1965, after United States's intervention in the Dominican Republic. It largely consisted of over 42,600 United States military personnel, plus the following troops were sent by each country; Brazil 1130, Honduras 250, Paraguay 184, Nicaragua 160, Costa Rica 21 military police, and El Salvador 3 staff officers. Brazil eventually took over from the United States in 1966 and the IAPF was disbanded in 1967.
