The UEHMG had already been recognised for many years by the Austrian Armed Forces as an association relevant to defence policy, and now the official distinction of being a partner of the Austrian Armed Forces has been further extended by a decree of the Federal Minister of Defence.
Within the Tradition Day of the NBC Defence Centre, the partnership with the UEHMG was formally concluded by the handing over of the certificate by the Commander, Colonel Mag. Jürgen Schlechter, to the President, Major General iTR Michael Blaha, MSc.
Major General iTR Michael Blaha, MSc, who attended the ceremony in his uniform as a colonel of the Austrian Armed Forces, pointed out in his speech the objectives of the UEHMG and the intersections with the Austrian Armed Forces.
In the following social part of the event, the numerous representatives of the UEHMG and the comrades of the Austrian Armed Forces were able to perform the first joint act of cultivating tradition.
