Army and Society

NECESSARY AND USEFUL MEETING

The proximity of literature and army is dictated by life and has its reasons. What is literature? – The movement of the soul. What is the army? – The force that protects the homeland from the enemy. Does strength need the presence of the soul? – Sure.

OUR CONFIDENCE STRENGTHENED

I think that the writer – the defender of man, and the soldier – the defender of the motherland and the world, both in the days of peace and in times of war must act together.

MISUNDERSTANDING OR FLAGRANT INDIFFERENCE?

MY SOLDIER-SON

5 months ago, my son was recruited into the army. And finally there was the opportunity to visit his military unit. My daughter and I arrived there in the evening. We were received like family, provided a place to sleep. I was very inspired with the friendly attitude of the command to the parent of a soldier. I was delighted: so here they know the value of a soldier, respect him.
