Holiday Greetings by Minister of Defence Kalle Laanet

23. December 2021 - 15:27

Dear friends from Allied countries,

Christmas is a time for family, food and togetherness. Most of your families are far away, but I hope that you will enjoy Estonian Christmas food and the company of Estonian and Allied fellow soldiers.

Everyone has endured hardship in the past two years. The pandemic has made the tasks of the eFP battlegroup and other Allied and Estonian forces more difficult to achieve. But you have done an excellent job for which I extend to you and to your commanders the gratitude of Estonia.

We are also thankful to your families for supporting you until you join each other again.

I wish all the allied soldiers in Estonia and their loved ones happy holidays and a happy new year.
