The servicemen returned following the successful completion of their combat training tasks during the "Combat Cooperation-2023" exercises.
A warm and dignified reception was organized at the 10216 Air Defense Forces Military Unit, where the brigade's leadership, comrades-in-arms, and close relatives welcomed the returning military personnel, as reported by Sarbaz.kz.
The most touching and heartwarming moments of the event were the reunions between fathers and their children, who had been separated for over a month.
Many children couldn't contain their tears of joy and rushed into the loving arms of their fathers.
Following the "Combat Cooperation-2023" exercises, approximately 30 units of military and special combat vehicles, along with over 200 servicemen from the 10216 military unit, returned to their permanent bases after covering a march distance of more than 1,000 kilometers on their own.
The brigade commander expressed gratitude to the military personnel for their professionalism demonstrated during the exercises and extended his appreciation to the families of the servicemen for their patience and resilience.
"Respected servicemen, you've shown resilience, endurance, and carried out your military duty with dignity! Thank you for your honorable service to the Motherland!" noted Colonel Orynbasar Zhubanov, the brigade commander.
