Fijian Troops Welcome New year With Song, Celebration
Fijian troops serving in the Golan Heights celebrated the New Year together. Commanding officer Lieutenant-Colonel Isoa Loanakadavu, while officiating at their New Year’s church service, commended the soldiers for the work they had done in 2014.
“I thank all our senior officers and to all you members of the military who are gathered together here to come and serve in this country,” Lt-Col Loanakadavu said.
He reminded the soldiers of their work as peacekeepers.
“It’s been six months since we have been here, if we commit ourselves and do our work well, we will be strengthened.” Lt-Col Loanakadavu urged the soldiers to remember their families in Fiji while they are serving away from home.
