Rebuilding an entire military is a massive undertaking it takes time and Patience . General Vega of the Royal Spanish Army had gotten his government to agree to a longer stay in Peru. One of his Battalions would help the Peruvians to train and it would also give them more time to train officers. Several of the Peruvian Officers who graduated from the 5 Months of Military School were sent to a Spanish Battalion where they were able to get more experience under the watchful eyes of professional officer who had seen combat. Colonel Chan met with General Vega at least once a week to keep him informed about the Military training program. Admiral Kamehameha, new Chairman of the joint Hawaiian Chiefs of staff arrived to check the progress of the training program. The US had provided several T37 A trainers and 2 T-38 trainers. Hawaii had delivered 4 coastal Patrol Gunboats they were equipped with a 40mm gun as well as Machine guns.
