On behalf of members of the Serbian Armed Forces and myself, I extend my heartfelt congratulations to the members of the River units branch and River flotilla on the occasion of August 6 – the Day of the branch and the Day of River flotilla.
On this Day in 1915, the first Serbian warship “Jadar”, made by the hands of local experts at the Čukarica shipyard, was launched from the Sava River.
Preserving the tradition of more than a century, with your professionalism and expertise you justify the trust that you enjoy in the Serbian Armed Forces and society.
