He commended them for a job well done amidst competing resource availability, saying “One can do a thousand good things and also one thousand good things can be washed away by one person.”
The Deputy CLF further urged BGXXXI and the Military Training Team 05 to preserve discipline and patience, which are key principles under the UPDF doctrine.
He thanked the Global Peace Operation (GPO) initiative for training troops at the center.
