Over 550 children of ARM members from the Air Force Brigade and other ARM and MOD commands and units, including the children of the fallen and deceased members of the staff, relatives and friends of the employees, today had an unforgettable opportunity to receive New Year’s gift-packages from the Army “Flying Santa”.
The ceremony at the already well-known arrival place of Santa Claus by a transport military helicopter MI-8, and the sharing of New Year’s gift-packages, has traditionally been held for more than 20 years at the military part of the “Alexander the Great” Airport in the “Strasho Pindzur” barracks in Petrovec. This year it has caused an enormous interest among the youngest.
This ARM activity, in a symbolic manner and with many merry people, marked the completion of the celebration of the 25th jubilee of ARM establishment. It demonstrated the execution of the constitutionally assigned tasks in defending the territorial sovereignty of the Republic of Macedonia and in serving the citizens of our country, confirming that ARM is always present where it is necessary.
