Abstract : During the past fifteen years, the majority of the Latin American nations has returned from autocratic rule to duly elected democratic governments. This paper deals that an approach to appropriate civil-military relationships in Latin America in the framework of developing National Policy and a National Strategy. Although the military appropriately takes a subordinate role to its civilian leaders, it nevertheless plays a key role in the economic progress of the developing nations of Latin America. Particularly in El Salvador, which has only just recently resolved a decade-long insurgency, there exists an absolute need for the civilian and military leadership to work efficiently and effectively together in mapping out and achieving Salvadoran National Objectives.
