GHAZNI PROVINCE, Afghanistan - The Polish Prime Minister Donald Tust, along with Gen. Bronisław Kwiatkowski, the operational commander of Polish Land Forces, met with Polish and American Soldiers at Forward Operating Base Ghazni, Afghanistan, on Poland's Armed Forces Day, Aug. 15.

"I pay homage for courage, sacrifice and heroism of all polish soldiers, here in Afghanistan," said Tust, addressing the Polish soldiers in a speech.

Tust made sure he emphasized how proud all Polish citizens are of their soldiers serving in Afghanistan. He also paid respect to Capt. Daniel Amboziński, who was killed in Afghanistan a few days prior.

The Prime Minister said, the day of courage for Polish soldiers in history came after a day of mourning for the next hero in polish history.

"Polish soldiers risk their own lives, so future Poles and Polish soldiers will not have to pay this price by Vistula River," said Tust, referring to the famous river that covers half of Poland.
