A military ceremony to mark the 72nd Special Operations Brigade Day, which is celebrated on January 27 in memory of this unit’s first successfully accomplished combat mission, was held at the "Rastko Nemanjić" barracks in Pančevo today.

In front of the Brigade members standing in formation, the past year’s work results were summed up and awards were presented to the most deserving individuals. Following this, wreaths were laid in the unit’s memorial room.

The holiday celebration was an opportunity to highlight the Brigade members’ top training, high morale and professionalism that they demonstrate while executing all assigned tasks, thus contributing to the enhancement of operational capabilities of the Serbian Armed Forces and justifying the status of one of the Serbian Armed Forces’ elite units.

The ceremony was attended by Deputy Chief of the Serbian Armed Forces General Staff, Lieutenant General Petar Cvetković, former commanders of the 72nd Special Operations Brigade, representatives of SAF units, Serbian Orthodox Church, local self-government bodies, Ministry of the Interior, veteran associations and institutions that the unit collaborates with.

Today, members of the 72nd Special Operations Brigade also celebrated St. Sava Day — the unit’s St. Patron’s day.
