By:Staff Lieutenant Colonel / Yousef Juma Al Haddad
Editor in Chief
His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, recently awarded the “Emirates” or “Bravery Medal” to a number of Armed Forces personnel who participated in the tasks of duty and humanitarian efforts abroad. This award was in appreciation of their heroic actions during the performance of their tasks abroad. 
The heroes of the Armed Forces deserve every respect and appreciation for their courage, sacrifice and valour in the defence of the security and stability of the country. They have shown bravery in the fields of right and duty and provided all kinds of humanitarian assistance to all people in the world. Therefore, they are truly a source of pride because they are working to enhance the security and stability of the UAE and protect its gains and achievements in all fields.
On many national occasions, HH Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan affirmed his pride in the heroes of the Armed Forces and described them as, “the faithful protectors and invincible shield of their homeland, for they embody the highest values of loyalty and belonging to this good land.” He hailed their heroic acts in the UAE and overseas in the various fields of right and dignity, to instil in them enthusiasm and the spirit of resolve and determination.

This proves his genius as a military commander with a proven ability and competence. He is well aware of the nature of the role played by the Armed Forces and the importance of working to constantly raise their morale so that they would carry out the tasks assigned to them with all proficiency. His Highness considers the Armed Forces the backbone of any country, in view of its vital role in supporting comprehensive development and maintaining the supreme strategic interests of the country at home and abroad.
Therefore, it is necessary to pay great attention to it and give due respect and recognition as is the case in all developed countries of the world. This reflects his keenness to develop and modernise the Armed Forces and improve its readiness and efficiency to be one of the world’s best in terms of training, armament, professionalism and capability to translate the UAE foreign policy objectives.
When our wise leadership pays tribute to the heroes of the Armed Forces and emphasises its pride in them, they provide a role model in sacrifice for the sake of the nation’s prosperity, security and stability, and sends a positive message that the nation appreciates the efforts and sacrifices of its loyal sons. This would motivate all citizens in various fields to unleash their energies and redouble their efforts in order to keep the UAE flag soaring in the fields of pride, honour, right and duty.
For the past 43 years, our Armed Forces has proved to be a true patriotic school and factory of powerful men who are always ready to defend their homeland and their Arab nation. The heroes of the Armed Forces have proved to be the best ambassadors for the sublime values of the UAE people. They have always been extraordinary men in their endeavours, giving dedication and sincerity. Therefore, they are worthy of all recognition and honour by the wise leadership, for they are the pride of all the people of the UAE.
