Back Home from Afghanistan

In Trebišov, the Minister of Defence of the SR Martin Glváč awarded commemorative medals to 92 soldiers returning home from their tour in ISAF, Afghanistan. It is the first rotation returning home after the tragic event from July this year, when Daniel Kavuliak died.

Allow me to thank you for your continued performance of tasks even after what had happened. At the same time, I would like to extend my thanks to your families and friends, because the whole situation was probably even harder for them,” said the Head of the Department of Defence.

He further emphasized that the Slovak soldiers had done a good job during their six-month engagement. Members of the force protection unit checked more than 62,000 vehicles and 113,000 persons. They intervened and took action on several occasions when the local inhabitants tried to infiltrate the military base.
