By the decision of the Minister of Defence of Georgia, the tradition of revealing and rewarding the best military servicemen in the Defence Forces was established. The new initiative was introduced to the soldiers at the Giorgi Antsukhelidze Sergeant Academy in Kojori.
Irakli Gharibashvili presented certificates and monetary awards to the 5 best soldiers identified by the Selection Council established in the Defence Forces. The winners were named in the categories of Best Platoon Commander, Best Squad Commander, Best Junior Officer, Best Sergeant and Best Corporal. The military will be rewarded once every three months.
The aim of the new project is to raise motivation and combat readiness among the military servicemen, which is one of the priority directions in the action document of the agency "Minister Vision 2020". The best military personnel are selected based on a variety of criteria, including the level of discipline, physical and combat training, the quality of fulfilling duties, decision-making skills and teamwork. A special commission will reveal the best contract military servicemen, corporals, sergeants and junior officers from all the units.
