The Day of the Military Academy marked

On the occasion of the Day of the Military Academy, today, at the Conference Hall of this higher military education institution, a ceremony has been organized attended by First Deputy Prime Minister and Defence Minister Aleksandar Vucic and Serbian Armed Forces Chief of General Staff General Ljubisa Dikovic, as well as representatives of educational institutions, the Ministry of Defence and the Serbian Armed Forces, religious communities, cultural and public life.

On that occasion, the Commandant of the Military Academy, Major General Mladen Vuruna handed Minister Vucic Great Military Academy Plaque for the trust and support to this higher military education institution.

Congratulating the members of the Military Academy on their holiday, Minister Vucic pointed out that there is no better system at the Serbian state level than the Serbian Armed Forces.

- The Military Academy is not only a part of the University of Defence, but one of the most important parts of our educational system, the institution that provides the widest possible reputation, not only of our armed forces but also of the entire educational system. Not surprisingly, in many of the countries in the world everyone wishes to send their representatives, students, young people to come, to be educated here and learn from the best professors and teachers, while also knowing that they are coming to their friends – Minister Vucic underlined, telling to cadets that there is a great role before them in the future and that with their knowledge and qualification they should send a message to everyone that Serbia is not for sale.

According to him, although the state is in poor economic conditions, they will try to invest more in military education and the Military Academy, but it will be the process of several years, with visible progress from year to year.

- You are the part of the society that still can say more than the rest of us, what you did for your country and what are you always ready to do for your country – Minister Vucic said to male and female cadets.

Speaking about the importance of military education, General Vuruna reminded of the most important moments in the history of the Military Academy, pointing out that Serbia is one of a few countries that have recognized early the importance of officer career development.

- The Military Academy is nowadays a dynamic institution that lives and works 365 days a year, with 15 accredited study programmes and four career development programmes from the field of humanities and technical and technological educational scientific field covering various categories of students for the needs of command and employment of the units of local defence industry, the management of the security and defence sector and defence system development – General Vuruna said adding that this house educates Military Grammar School students, cadets, future reserve officers, professional officers, senior civil servants, civilians, civilian students as well as members of the armed forces from many countries.

The ceremony was also an opportunity for the Rector of the University of Defence Lieutenant General Professor Miodrag Jevtic to present the awards to the most successful members of the Military Academy, and for General Vuruna to present diplomas to the members of the defence system who acquired academic titles of Master in the previous year, and gratitude letters to institutions that gave special contributions to the teaching process at the Military Academy.

Military Academy marks 163rd anniversary of its existence and its day, 18 March, in memory of the same date in 1850, when Prince Alexander II approved the formation of the Artillery School.
