Training of Guardsmen in Performing Military Honors
Wednesday, 22.6.2022 | Training
As part of the Guards’ collective training, this unit trains soldiers on military service as of March 2022 in performing military honors.
Such training in protocol duties is provided for selected soldiers, those who have stood out with their training results, hard work, mental and physical fitness and abilities shown during close-order drills.
Along with the Guards Battalion’s professional soldiers and officers, they practice daily close-order drills as part of military honors and protocol activities performed in support of state authorities. The aim is to reach the required level of Guardsman’s competence and to master perfectly close-order drills. The practice leads to an automated performance, thus minimizing the possibility of mistake in front of state leadership and highest foreign representatives.
The soldiers are exceptionally motivated and hardworking during the training, willing to become SAF’s employees/professional Guardsmen upon completion of their military service. The best ones among them will be allowed to attain that goal.
