Leadership of Algirdas Battalion to meet with relatives of soldiers who are on a mission in Iraq


On Friday, 14 January a meeting of the Algirdas Battalion leadership with relatives of troops LITCON–4 who are currently serving in Iraq will take place at the Rukla-based battalion's headquarters. The platoon has been attending the mission in Iraq since last summer.

The Algirdas Battalion maintains a nice tradition of meetings with relatives of soldiers serving in far-away missions. During the meeting on Friday, the Battalion commanders will tell the relatives of soldiers about the mission, share the latest news and answer the questions. A video film about Lithuanian mission in Iraq will be shown to the visitors.


Currently, over 100 Lithuania troops serve in Iraq. More than 50 troops of the Algirdas Battalion serve within the composition of the Danish brigade in the area near the city of Al Kurna in the British-controlled sector of responsibility. Another 50 troops from the Birute Battalion serve in the region of Basrah. The tasks of Lithuanian troops include protection of important assets, guarding of the camp and patrolling.
