He also mentioned the importance of War Museums, and pointed out that this does not lie simply in the exhibition of objects of great historical value, but is connected with the mental revival of the most shocking moments of the Nation, as well as the sacrifices and struggles of our ancestors, keeping our debt to those who shed their blood for the Freedom and independence of Greece, exuding freedom, competitive spirit and a vision of dignity.

Addressing the President and the members of the Board of Directors of the War Museum, praised their work and congratulated them on the successful actions they have carried out, with which they promote the history of the Armed Forces.
