VICTORY AND HOMELAND THANKSGIVING DAY AND THE DAY OF CROATIAN DEFENDERS

Armed Forces of the Republic of Croatia were founded on 28 May 1991, when the first brigades of the National Guard made a ceremonial pledge. In the years after the victory and peace establishment the Armed Forces of the Republic of Croatia were constituted into a modern and professional army with new tasks in international peacekeeping missions and operations. Before the formation of Croatian military brigades and during the Homeland War, police officers were among the first –as a shield – to defend the country. Apart from performing regular tasks, police at the same time actively participated in the defence of the homeland, which is a unique example in the history of warfare.
