28 May – Croatian Armed Forces Day

Congratulations on the Croatian Army Day to everyone! THANK YOU very much to the volunteers and defenders of the Homeland War, and especially to the volunteers who came to defend Croatia and its independence from the diaspora and Bosnia and Herzegovina!

The Day of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Croatia and the Day of the Croatian Army are celebrated every year on May 28, the day when the National Guard (ZNG) festive assembly was held at the NK Zagreb Stadium in Kranjčevićeva Street, Zagreb, in 1991. The first brigade of the ZNG was presented to the Croatian public. The National Guard Corps was the name for a professional, uniformed, armed formation, a military organisation for the defence and police duties in the Republic of Croatia, the forerunner of the Croatian Army.

It was the first official review of the unit that submitted the report to President Dr. Franjo Tudjman, so the act itself marked the historic establishment of the armed forces.

Thank you all who fought to defend Croatian independence from communist Yugoslavia – who fought against the most brutal of aggressors in the 20th century!  Ina Vukic
