Tuesday, 5.5.2020 | Stories from Units
Today, the Minister of Defence Aleksandar Vulin and the Chief of the General Staff of the Serbian Armed Forces, General Milan Mojsilović, visited the March 2020 generation of soldiers who are doing voluntary military service at the Training Command’s Third Training Centre at the “Vojvoda Petar Bojović” Barracks in Leskovac.
After the tour, Minister Vulin said:
— By order of the Supreme Commander of the Serbian Armed Forces, Aleksandar Vučić, and at the suggestion of the Chief of the General Staff of the Serbian Armed Forces, General Mojsilović, all soldiers doing voluntary military service in the March class will be promoted to a higher rank based on merit. These young people have deserved it and each of them has made a huge contribution to the fight against Covid-19. They set up temporary hospitals, and did everything else that was expected from them, they did not enquire about their working hours and they did not ask when they would go home.
— This is how the Serbian Armed Forces repay them and show them how much they value them. Over 200 soldiers, more than 80 percent of all those who were doing voluntary military service in March, decided to continue their careers in the Serbian Armed Forces. The Serbian Armed Forces and their commanding officers could not receive a greater compliment, and the state of Serbia could hardly have received better news — Minister Vulin pointed out.
The future of Serbia and the freedom of Serbia are certain with such military and such commanding officers, the Minister of Defence concluded.
Minister Vulin and General Mojsilović attended a training demonstration of soldiers on voluntary military service who performed preparation for the preliminary 7.62 mm automatic rifle firing, training in the use of a 64 mm M80 hand rocket launcher, 7.9 mm sniper rifle and 7.62 mm machine gun, as well as mastering the tactical course.
