I have been honoured to receive the decoration of the Związku Polskich Spadochroniarzy w Warszawie – the Polish Union of Parachutists, Warsaw branch. The Union was established in 1989 by a group of former paratroopers. It brings together military veterans, current military paratroopers and reservists, as well as some civilians involved in parachuting professionally or for recreation. It is officially registered as a public benefit association in law and is a member of the European Federation of Paratroopers and the Federation of Associations of Reservists and Veterans of the Polish Armed Forces. The Warsaw branch is one of forty branches in Poland and Germany.
