On November 22 we had a pleasure to visit Łomża. Our Institute, together with the representatives of Center of Foreign Mission Veterans, organized another meeting, as a part of „Live history – a meeting with a Veteran” project, at Higher School of Agribusiness. This time, a lecture given by Chor. A. Korus - chief of the Education and Tradition Section at CFMV, gathered around 500 students from different schools in Łomża (i.e. Academic School Complexes, III Secondary School, Technical and General Education School Complex no. 4 and Economic and General Education School Complex no. 6). Students also participated in a video-conference with Michał Matraj - a paramedic recently serving in Afghanistan. They also learned about the involvement of Polish Army, Police Forces and other uniformed services in foreign missions. During the meeting student’s knowledge was also examined in a short quiz in which they could have won the „Polish Army – Foreign Missions” board game, founded by Warsaw Institute for Strategic Initiatives, and other prizes founded by the Center for Veterans.
Finally we also encourage to contact Center for Foreign Mission Veterans directly and to familiarize with their educational offer, specialized library and to visit their office. More information can be found at: centrum-weterana.mon.gov.pl.
