Felipe VI will exalt military work against the Covid and in La Palma in the military Easter

It is the day of yours, that of the military. The day in which the royal house shows its proximity to the armed forces and the king, to the colleagues of his. This Thursday, on Military Easter Day, Felipe VI will recognize the performance of its members in the help of those affected by the eruption of the volcano in La Palma and by the Incorable Activity of the armies against the Covid.

The monarch has already made reference in previous occasions to the work played by the armed forces in the fight against the pandemic. This Thursday he will remember the Balmi operation, developed after the viral burst, and in which his role was key to the cleaning of facilities and the transfer of the sanitary material.

But it will also mention the Baluarte operation, still underway and in which armies worry about tracking the trail of the infected to put containment dams.

The king will expose how the military, today, are having an essential role when it comes to reinforcing vaccination systems. After the irruption of the omicron variant, the images of uniformed soldiers are successfully putting vaccines throughout Spain.

The intervention of the monarch will take days after his Christmas speech, in which he defended the Constitution as a rule to agglutinate Spanish society, and arouse enormous criticists on the part of the nationalists who support the Government of Pedro Sánchez. Don Felipe has always defended in his speeches of military Easter the constitutional role of armies and their importance in the unity of Spain.

Again, the event will take place with enormous limitations for health reasons. In the Plaza de la Armery of the Royal Palace, a reduced military stop will be carried out and chaired by the monarch. Already in the interior of the palace there will be a brief reception in which the king, accompanied by the Queen, the president of the Government and the Ministers of Defense, Margarita Robles, and Interior, Fernando Grande-Marlaska, will greet the military commanders.

Subsequently, the defense minister will take the floor, who will conduct a global vision of the actions of the armed forces during the course it has concluded. The act will conclude with the intervention of the monarch.

During speeches there will be a special memory the military displaced abroad and participate in international missions. It will also have a special role all the operation carried out by the military in Afghanistan and that allowed the departure of a significant number of cooperators who worked for the armed forces during the mission.

A year ago, the day was marked by retired military that questioned in private chats to the government and that, even, launched slogans.
