      Good thing. Margelov not only created, but also saved the airborne forces from disbanding. Real Dad! Here are just some kind of ugly monument.

    You would have shown a report from there, if only in the recording — not every day monuments are put to SUCH people! And the fact that he deserved the monument, maybe even during his lifetime, is beyond doubt!

    Good news. True, there will be no white-tongue in your teeth, and even those invigorating-frisky capacious phrases uttered on the great mighty command will not convey any monument. The real uncle was! Well, for Vasil Filippich drinks
    Clinking glasses, his life goes on!

    "Uncle Vasya’s troops" are called the Airborne Troops. Once in a conversation with one old paratrooper (he still served under Margelov) and he said that Vasil Filipovich all adored and said: "Uncle Vasya loves like that of Uncle Vasya"
    As it seems to me in the words "Uncle Vasya * confirmation of Love for his commander, because, none of the commanders, all subordinates of a private before the general did not call" uncle "

    The main monument to Margelov will be the preservation by new generations of paratroopers of his traditions and his fighting spirit, which he laid in the foundations of the Airborne Forces.

      That is, for your example, the Tatars, Bashkirs, Yakuts or Tuvans, he is not worthy of memory?

    In Donetsk, in 2015 opened. "Airborne brothers" - "like a balm on the heart." I'm not a "landing", but a lot with the "striped nature in common." Vasily Filippovich Margelov !!! Probably "timed" the opening to the "38th anniversary of the entry of troops into Afghanistan"? "Uncle Vasya" - always in your memory! “Daddy” - a lot, - “Uncle Vasya is the only one!”
