“For each of them, this is a big and significant event that will remain in memory for many years to come. Parents are deliberately postponing their vacation, and children are traveling to summer camps to be in their hometown on that day and to march with the servicemen. We select the best Yunarmeys in drill training, but besides that they have other achievements – in education, science, creativity and sports, “said Vladimir Kuzmin, a member of the Yunarmiya regional headquarters in the northern capital, who headed the Yunarmeyskaya” box “on Navy Day.

“Each trip is new discoveries, new knowledge and special impressions. Thus, we pay tribute to the memory of our ancestors, who experienced all the horrors of war.

“The Landmark squad, which has been replenished with new recruits, is far from us, but constantly in touch with us. The guys are doing a great job to preserve the historical memory. For example, in July they put in order the memorial “Glory to military and labor feats”, and in August they will begin to improve the burial sites of participants in the Great Patriotic War. And, by the way, this is the same squad that was awarded the prestigious Warm Heart prize in 2021, ”stressed Nikita Nagorny, chief of the General Staff of the Youth Army, three-time world champion, eight-time European champion, Olympic silver medalist.
