Military Review


132-th issue in the Ryazan Higher Airborne Command School named after Army General V.F. Margelov

23 June Ryazan Higher Airborne Command School (RVVDKU) named Army General VF Margelova held solemn events dedicated to the 132 graduation of young officers. Diplomas of higher military educational institutions and the military rank of “lieutenant” received about 350 graduates of RVVDKU, including 50 military personnel of the armed forces of foreign countries. For the first time among graduates are 14 female lieutenants who studied the specialty “Application of paratroop support units”.
According to the established tradition, senior cadets held demonstration classes on the school grounds, demonstrating their skills weapons and techniques of army hand-to-hand combat.

After shooting various events of this kind, I receive a lot of emails asking me to share photos. As you know, I am never greedy, especially when it comes to such celebrations. I selected about 230 photos with graduates in advance and uploaded them to Yandex Photos. Photos in original size and without processing. I hope everything will figure out how to download the originals.

Diploma with honors

Release of the first set of girls

Approximately 25 girls entered the first course, only 14 reached the finish line

I certainly paid more attention to the girls. Unfortunately, I did not have time to photograph the graduation of other students.

    Good selection of photos, thanks to the author! Negroes in the form of airborne forces are generally super, a terrible dream of the Americans! A graduate writes a wish on the back of a girl on a dollar.

      Kucheryavo. We had 50 under one shoulder strap and 100 under the other. Rubles. Well, "under the cap" for their acquaintances and compatriots from junior courses (in real life, in your pocket) And nothing was written on them. This is for the first and second person who for the first time called a graduate a lieutenant and congratulated him. As soon as the system was dismissed, you approach the newly made lieutenant, hand to the skull and "comrade lieutenant, congratulations on the assignment of the first officer rank." He substitutes the shoulder strap.

      The tradition is common to all schools, but with options. It's a pity the photographer was unable to photograph the rain from coins, also a common tradition.

          In order to seize the moment, you must have insider information. The author of the photos apparently could not do this.

          By the way, he photographs well, in the case. His site is in my bookmarks

    Cool photos, congratulations to all graduates who have reached graduation! A brilliant and interesting military career for everyone, success, Victories! You have a lot of hard work ahead of you, strength, health and endurance - the Motherland loves you, and the state will not spare you, but the paratrooper does not expect this, he remembers: "where hell ends, the airborne forces begin there!" wink

    PS The 13th photo above is of genuine interest. What makes a sailor in the ranks of graduates?
