The civil and military leadership of the Armed Forces kindly accepted the "Greece 2021" Committee donation of 20 modern personnel transport vehicles, which will be made available to our border control forces in the Evros region.
"I am thankful for the kind offer; your donation will significantly increase the transportation capacity of the Army so that it will be able to respond effectively to its mission," emphasized the Minister of National Defence, Nikos Panagiotopoulos, and pronounced Mrs. Gianna Angelopoulos-Daskalaki "a friend of the Armed Forces."
On his part, the Chief of the Hellenic National Defence General Staff, General Constantinos Floros, pointed out that the donation strengthens and upgrades the rolling stock sector by increasing the Armed Forces' ability to perform aptly in the various roles designated by their mission and benefit the society.
"I assure you that your donation will be paramount in border surveillance; they will be ever grateful," said Lieutenant General Charalambos Lalousis, Chief of the Hellenic Army General Staff, while the President of the "Greece 2021" Committee stated that "when they are ready we will go to Evros together." "We are here to strengthen the Armed Forces in their social work," stressed Mrs. Angelopoulos in her short greeting and added: "The Armed Forces are not only responsible for defense, but they also perform an important social duty. You contribute every day in dozens of small and larger "fronts," to use military terms, by the citizens' side. The 840 thousand euros donation of the 20 vehicles to the Hellenic Army General Staff also satisfies the fundamental principle of the Committee for actions with a public imprint, actions that will last".
