On the 14th of September the Turkish soldiers of the EUFOR Multinational Battalion, alongside other EUFOR personnel working within Camp Butmir took part in an ‘Alpine March’. The event consisted of the group walking for over 6 hours to the peak at Bjelašnica.
The purpose of the march was teambuilding, allowing the soldiers taking part to build upon their relationships with each other. 103 personnel took part, reaching the summit where they were able to see structures used during the 1984 Winter Olympics.
