When I was assigned to the Canal Zone back in the 1970s, I drove my car to Charleston, from where the government shipped it to Panama. But with all the rules about using only US-flag vessels, I'll bet that such civilian-controlled shipments cost the government more than it does to piggyback members' cars on Navy ships. (When I eventually left Panama, I drove up the Interamerican Highway -- a much better arrangement, although for very different reasons.)

With all this manual labor, I may not make it out of retirement alive.
