Christmas Message by the Minister of National Defence Panos Kammenos

On the occasion of the Birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, I would like to extend my warmest wishes to the Armed Forces personnel, Officers, NCOs, Soldiers, Seamen, Airmen, Civilian Personnel, and National Guardsmen.

I had the pleasure, during my recent visit to Military Formations and outposts in border areas and islands of the Aegean, of confirming once again the high morale, professionalism, and devotion to duty of the personnel, wherever they may serve and under any conditions.

I am really proud of each and every one of you for serving our country in every Army, Navy, and Air Force Unit across Greece, while at the same time inspiring unity to the Greek people with your continuous and tireless contribution to Greek society, wherever needed.

I wholeheartedly wish that the star of Bethlehem and its promising message of peace and unity lights everyone's lives and brings happiness and prosperity to you and your families.

Merry Christmas.
