TO: MAJOR GENERAL GRUDI ANGELOV,
COMMANDANT OF RAKOVSKI NATIONAL DEFENSE COLLEGE,
CHAIR OF THE EDITORIAL STAFF OF BULGARIAN MILITARY THOUGHT MAGAZINE
Dear members of the editorial staff,
On behalf of the Ministry of Defense and personally, I would like to express my sincere admirations for all of you who embraced the patriotic initiative to revive Bulgarian Military Thought Magazine! I wish you to have the strength, the guiding spirit and enthusiasm, and the noble goal of real renaissance men of letters! I wish you to be healthy and positive so that you can follow the idea of this magazine – an idea commenced by our predecessors many years back in time.
We – not just the politicians but also people like you, who are managers, teachers, and researchers in the higher educational system, students, doctoral students, public activists – all of us today need to aspire to improvement, to aiming high, to having tireless energy to keep the leadership spirit. We need to preserve our social awareness, our strong and proud character, our traditions, our patriotic values, and the pillars of the Bulgarian nation. The young generations need to have a guiding light, a well-trodden path and, most of all, a valuable example to follow. We are obligated to hand it over to them, and they would hand it over to the next generations.
Good luck to the whole team! Let Bulgarian Military Thought Magazine be a good basis for deliberations, let it bring new valuable knowledge, let it give a forum for productive discussions and an opportunity to the readers and followers to share ideas in the area of security and defense.
