Handover of EMPA-Award 2012
For the second time since 2009 an article published in TUPPENDIENST was awarded the EMPA-Award for the best article of the year.
The EMPA-Award 2012 goes to Col. Helmut Anzeletti for his article “Georgia-Where I left my Soul” published in TRUPPENDIENST 6/2011. Helmut Anzeletti does not write novels – he shares his experience from Cyprus, Bosnia, Kuwait, and Iraq or as in this case from Georgia.
Due to his deployment to EUFOR “Althea” the author was not able to attend the EMPA Congress in Prague this year. Therefore the Austrian POC BrigGen (ret.) Dr. Hermann Heller and editor-in-chief Col. Dr. Jörg Aschenbrenner handed over the trophy on the occasion of a celebration in the editorial office of TRUPPENDIENST on December 20th, 2012.
