Welcome To The Belize Defence Force Official Website
COMMANDER BELIZE DEFENCE FORCE
CHRISTMAS MESSAGE 2014
The Belize Defense Force has had a very successful year. Personally, I want to extend my gratitude to all the men and women in uniform and the civilian staff of this prestigious institution. The Force is fortunate to have all of you be part of it and let no one tell you otherwise.
The axiom of progress and its accompanying challenges is experienced throughout the hierarchal structure of the Force. The ephemeral challenges are however, an impetus to the progressive success in the Force. I assure you that we will maintain such momentum if not in an accelerated mode in 2015. Thus, it is imperative for us to maintain foresight and discipline in 2015.
You, the men and women, are the cementing factor of this Force. I ask that as we celebrate the Christmas season and step into 2015 let us be “kind” to each other. Let the leaders at the various rank structures address each other’s concerns with consciousness, logic, consideration and professionalism. As mentioned before, the challenges met can only be resolved with good communication and team-work.
I hereby send my regards to your families. Their support through patience and understanding is very much appreciated. Let us be reminded of the true meaning of Christmas and celebrate it in peace and harmony. I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
