Army Day in Armenia (28/01)

Every year on January 28, Armenia celebrates the professional holiday of all servicemen of the Armenian armed forces - Army Day (arm. "Բանակի օր").

In 1991, by the decision of the Government of the Republic of Armenia, the State Defense Committee was established under the Council of Ministers, and on January 28, 1992, the historic decision “On the Defense of the Republic of Armenia” was adopted, thereby announcing the fact of the creation of the Armenian National Army.

Currently, the date of January 28 is a holiday and non-working day (since 2001), according to the Law of the President of the Republic "On Holidays and Memorable Days of the Republic of Armenia".
