Last year the Association of the Polish Armed Forces Soldiers celebrated its 30th anniversary.
Main goals of the Union:
- integration of former and active servicemen on issues of defense capacities of Poland and combat traditions of the Polish people in striving for freedom, independence and sovereignty;
- support given to former and active servicemen in safeguarding their rights acquired during their military service and work, rendering both legal and social assistance;
- promotion and development of friendly relations among former and active servicemen.
In 2008 on the initiative of the Council there was established the Federation of Associations of Law Enforcement Agencies consisting of retired police officers, state security services, the Frontier Service, Prison Service and State Fire Fighting Service. The Federation’s goal is to demonstrate a common position on issues of the country’s defense capacities as well as problems concerning pensioners and law enforcement and security agencies.
