HH the Amir, the Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, Sheikh Mishal Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, sponsored and attended the graduation of the 23rd batch of cadet officers at Ali Al-Sabah Military Academy.

The ceremony started with the national anthem and Quranic verses, then the academy commander addressed the crowd with a speech, noting the national need for coping with rapid changes worldwide, calling to overhaul the educational system, promote scientific culture, creativity, innovation and setting up an adequate environment for progress.

In light of the rapid development in the military sector, namely production of state-of-the-art weapons, the academy has been keen on qualifying the cadet officers to cope with challenges of military and security tasks by means of harnessing “technology as a strategic option to serve the academic and training realms”. The national military educational system has been overhauled, “turning into a distinguished example based on creativity, rationality, acquiring skills and expertise,” he said.

Following the speech, military personnel paraded, and the flag of the academy was swapped among personnel. The graduates were then dismissed and military formations paraded. Names of the graduates were announced by assistant commander of the academy Brigadier General Fahad Khaled Faisal. HH the Amir then handed over the trophies to the excellent graduated officers and high-record students at the Academy.

The Director of Educational and Legal Affairs Brigadier General Yusuf Abdullah Idriss took the legal oath, then declared the end of the military parade amid the national anthem. HH the Amir was awarded a memento on the occasion before he departed the ceremony venue.
