Sixty-six years ago today, the German Bundeswehr was founded.
We deeply appreciate the strong support we received from the United States and our Allies and partners in that process, during the Cold War - standing side by side with Germany - and in our daily operations as well as in our missions abroad.
Our Allies and Partners worldwide is what makes us stronger. Jointness is the rational of our actions.
We appreciate our joint training, our trusted partnerships, our close friendships - and your steadfast support of our Allies and Partners over the past decades and in the decades to come.
