- I believe that you feel proud for graduating from the Military Academy just like Field Marshals Živojin Mišić, Radomir Putnik, Stepa Stepanović and Petar Bojović graduated from it once, but also Second Lieutenant Borko Nikitović, Major Milan Tepić, Lieutenant Colonel Goran Ostojić, Pilot-Colonel Milenko Pavlović and many other heroes who showed in action how to defend an officer's honour and how to command military units in the wars for liberation and the defence of our country during and towards the end of the 20th century, by giving the most valuable thing they had - their lives – said General Radovanović with a message to the youngest officers to fall in line boldly, confident in themselves, confident of their knowledge and skills, because the Serbian Armed Forces are eagerly waiting for them.
