We have a duty of honor to recall all these brave Romanians not only on occasions that mark big historical moments or known celebrations, but be permanently grateful for their sacrifice. We owe respect and gratitude to the veterans of the Second World War and the veterans of the theaters of operations alike, to the wounded, as well as to the families of those who have heroically fallen in action," the Minister of Defence's message, posted on Facebook, shows.AGERPRES(RO - author: Sorinel Penes, editor: Florin Marin; EN - author: Razvan-Adrian Pandea, editor: Maria Voican)
