Happy UN Peacekeepers Day

The compound has been full of military and police recently, in preparation for the celebration of Peacekeepers Day!

 

It might seem like a lot of ceremony, but I was certainly glad that these guys were around this week, especially the one with the trombone.

The International Day of Peacekeepers was established by a UN resolution in 2002 and was first celebrated in 2003. The Day is intended to pay tribute “to all the men and women who have served and continue to serve in UN peacekeeping operations, as well as to honour the memory of those who have lost their lives in the cause of peace.
