As someone of you already know, over the years, AMI Executive Committee is trying to promote the AMI organization into the armed forces worldwide.
During the last AMI Conference in Split, Croatia, it was risen the idea to emphasize the activities of AMI organisation during the upcoming International Military Pilgrimage (PMI) in Lourdes and in particular, during the opening ceremony at the military camp.
During the CIP conference in Paris last January where was discussed the arrangements of PMI, this idea was raised. The decision was made to promote AMI during the break in the concert of the Dutch military band in the tent camp on Friday 17 May 2019, from 12:00 to 13:00 hours.In order to get in touch with young soldiers, we will then organise a gathering with some drinks and snacks, during which event members of our AMI organization, lead by our AMI President, will inform the youngsters and other military who are interested about the existence of AMI.
For those above mentioned events, we’d like to ask AMI delegates to spread the word to your national military communities in order to stimulate the presence of the young soldiers there.
Furthermore, the usual meeting of AMI delegates will be held in the evening of Friday 17 May starting from 21:00 at Hotel La solitude. Please come with some of your youngsters and let’s stay together.
