Many military and civilian personalies attended this event. These included a representative of the Deputy Prime Minister of Kosovo, the KFOR NLAT Commander General Wagner, the KSF Commander General Kastrati , and the KSF Land Force Commander General Rama.
Both General Wagner and General Kastrati delivered speeches on the history of the MCAD outlining its crucial role in recruiting, selecting and training the members of the KSF.
The ceremony was closed by granting letters of appreciation to former MCAD members.
