Among the awarded members there are officers, a battalion commander, non-commissioned officers from all subordinate units of the JOC, including a female member of the Military Police and of course professional soldiers. Particularly prominent is the professionalism and dedication of corporal Dejancho Trajanov from the 4th Mechanized Infantry Battalion of the 1st Mechanized Infantry Brigade, who is 44 and achieved the maximum 300 points.
In addressing the “best physically prepared members of the JOC”, General Arsoski stressed that physical fitness, besides training in the handling of personal weapons, is one of the basic segments of the combat readiness of the ARM. For the modern soldier to preserve health, maintain and raise his working ability and extend his working life, the imperative should be the maintenance of physical fitness, which will gradually turn into a lifestyle.
These stimulus measures in the beginning of 2019 should serve as an incentive for all ARM members to achieve even better results in their future work and an example of how they should be committed in the performance of the functional and assigned tasks.
