    “TODAY IS NOT SIMPLY THE ANNIVERSARY OF AN EVENT WHICH TOOK PLACE FIFTY YEARS AGO. IT IS A CELEBRATION OF FIFTY YEARS OF FRIENDSHIP, SUPPORT AND COMMUNITY—A SHARED HISTORY THAT WE CAN ALL BE PROUD OF.”

    JFC BRUNSSUM COMMANDER, GENERAL SALVATORE FARINA AND HIS TEAM STARTED PLANS FOR THIS GRAND OCCASION LAST AS EARLY AS THEY COULD.

    “WE STARTED PLANNING ONE YEAR AGO, THIS KIND OF CELEBRATION, AND WE WERE RIGHT TO DO IT IN ADVANCED BECAUSE WE BOOKED THE PRESENCE OF THE KING. THIS IS THE HIGHEST RECOGNITION ABOUT THIS COOPERATION AND THIS FRIENDSHIP IS FELT NOT ONLY FROM US, BUT ALSO THE POPULATION OF BRUNSSUM.”
