    Oath in Goniądz

    Yesterday, for the sixth time this year, the soldiers of the Podlasie Territorial Defence Brigade repeated the words of the military oath. In the 11th November Square in the city of Goniądz, 60 soldiers took an oath to the 1st Podlasie Territorial Defense Brigade. This was the final oath taking by volunteers this year.

     Brigade commander Colonel Sławomir Kocanowski said:

    ”Dear Soldiers of the Polish Home Army, Ladies and Gentlemen,
    Other soldiers of the Polish Army are receiving the first officer rank at this symbolic place in front of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. In Polish history, this promotion is connected with an accolade. This symbolic act unites the soldier with this home country. This promotion gives the soldiers the respect and appreciation of society. Although, it is also a great commitment.

     Let Our Lord Jesus Christ help you to fulfill your commitment and duties. Let him help you to serve our country whenever it needs you. Let the Holy Spirit watch over you and help you to act in a way our heroes and defenders of the Republic of Poland did. Let him help you defend the honor of our country and of an officer of the Polish Home Army. May God, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit bless you. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit”.
