I would like to send my cordial greetings on the 21st anniversary of formation of Armenia's Armed Forces. Both the Armenian army and the military medicine service came into being under the conditions of the war, which was imposed on us. The burden of the yet unformed military medicine lay on the shoulders of the YSMU senior students, many of which were providing first aid to the defenders of our fatherland.
Therefore, on the occasion of the 21st anniversary of the Armenian army my duty is to extend greetings to the military doctors, the staff of the YSMY Faculty of Military Medicine and the students wishing them to honorably fulfill the great mission they are called for. And although we do not shun the war, I wish you all peaceful military service.
Rector of Yerevan State Medical University
