BDF Soldiers Honored with Special Luncheon During Christmas Operations

The Christmas season is often a time when families pull closer together to celebrate the holidays, but for the men and women in Belize’s security forces, it’s usually a time of special operations. Realizing this, the Belize Defense Force has been holding special events for its soldiers to show them appreciation for the sacrifices they make for their country. Yesterday, BDF senior command held a special luncheon for soldiers of the BDF Second Battalion in the Toledo District. The luncheon was held at Fairweather Camp in Punt Gorda. The special guest speaker at the luncheon was Minister of State in the Ministry of National Defense and Border Security, Oscar Mira, who was once a soldier himself. Mira told Love News that he was honored to participate in serving the soldiers, who selflessly serve the country. He also noted that Fairweather Camp holds special significance for him.

Commanding Officer of BDF Second Battalion Lieutenant Colonel Elber Ramirez and BDF Deputy Commander Colonel Anthony Velasquez were among those serving the soldiers. Several soldiers also received Christmas presents
