Army Commander Greeting to Mark the Day of the Cavalry

Soldiers, gentlemen of honor, today, July 25th, I send my fraternal greetings, full of admiration.

Thank you for your service to the country.
Never forget that your sabers, crossed in your chest, were carved in the Pantano de Vargas on 14 horses, ridden by heroic lancers, in the regions of Pore, Pisba, and Paya.

I encourage you to continue loving your insignia, to care and plan your traditions. While I am in command of this Army, your schools, your war machines, and your horses will continue to march forward, to the sound of military drums and bugles.

That is why, I ask you to be disciplined based on honor and tradition to honor our victorious history.

Keep inspired by the legendary slogan:
"Coronel Rondon, salve Usted la Patria" (Colonel Rondón, save the homeland)
