Bulgarian and American Airmen Celebrate June 1, Children’s Day

Bulgarian and American airmen celebrated for the first time together June 1, Children’s Day, with 150 Bulgarian children of different ages from Bulgarian schools and kindergartens which have received humanitarian assistance in projects, funded by the Embassy’s Office of Defense Cooperation. The American pilots and airmen from the Oregon National Guard are in Bulgaria for the Thracian Eagle 2018 training with their Bulgarian counterparts. They were happy to talk to the kids about their work and show them their aircraft and equipment at the Graf Ignatievo Airbase.
