Since taking office in 1999, Chavez has tried to transform the military into defenders of his socialist-inspired policies, especially since a 2002 coup led by rebellious soldiers. Briefly dislodged from power, Chavez returned to the presidential palace only after loyalists within the military stepped in to put down the coup. (AP Photo/Fernando Llano, File)
