“The rebellious people of Serbia, together with the rebellious army, showed that the people and the army are one, that through history they have won the highest value, and that is freedom.
We gained statehood, integrity and sovereignty of the state and the Armed Forces, thanks to our brave ancestors, our warriors and heroes.
It remains to us to maintain even more what our ancestors left us as a legacy and not to allow anybody to disunite our people and the Armed Forces.
United we can head to the future, united we can maintain freedom, our army, and the sovereignty and integrity of the Republic of Serbia.
