Day of the National Army of the Republic of Moldova (03/09)

The National Army of the Republic of Moldova is one of the most important institutions of the stronghold of the state's national security system. Every year on September 3, Moldova celebrates the Day of the National Army.

The date for the holiday was chosen due to the fact that on this day in 1991 the President of Moldova signed a decree "On the formation of the Armed Forces". And the process of creating the military structures of the Armed Forces of the country was completed by 1997. The Armed Forces of the Republic of Moldova include the Ground Forces, the Air Force and the Danube Forces.

Along with other national holidays, National Army Day fits into the category of those festive events in which not only those who wear military uniforms, but literally all residents of Moldova take part. This tradition has developed due to respect for the National Army among citizens as an institution in which people believe and appreciate, understanding its tasks and needs.
