Today, it is one of the largest contributors to the NATO-led Resolute Support Mission, with some 800 service members on the ground; our Resolute Support Mission is a strong symbol of the continued global support to the government and the people of Afghanistan’ and these photos symbolise what this support means; they remind us that the sacrifice of brave service members, like Corporal Stoica, were not in vain; our Resolute Support Mission is making a difference, for the people and the future of Afghanistan and for our own security,” NATO DSG  highlighted.
