Maj Gen Bernhard BAIR, COMEUFOR, visited the LOT based in Cazin on 4th September 2011. The Romanian team led by Maj Bogdan IORGA provided a very professional and well organized visit for COMEUFOR. The team paraded for COMEUFOR’s arrival and then gave a tour of a very well organized and well maintained LOT House. This was followed by a very thorough brief with a question and answer period. The Romanian Senior National Representative (SNR), Maj Feraru, attended for the visit in his capacity as SNR and as the desk officer for this LOT House in EUFOR HQ.
The house is centrally located in CAZIN and this assists the team in keeping and improving the already established excellent relations with the local community. The LOT team has a large patrol area that they monitor on a regular basis.
COMEUFOR joined the team for a photograph and presented coins to all the team members. COMEUFOR complimented the LOT on their commitment in establishing their very good standing in the local community two months into their six month tour of duty. The visit was completed with lunch taken in a local restaurant.
