His Highness General Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the U.A.E. Armed Forces, yesterday praised the efforts and commitment of National Service trainees during a visit to Al Manama camp.

Brigadier Faisal Mohamed Al Shehhi provided His Highness with a full brief on the National Service programme and the progress of the recruits, who are part of the first batch of Emirati candidates who joined the National Service two months ago. As part of the tour, His Highness attended military field exercises, as well as, physical training activities in the fitness centre.

His Highness emphasised to the young recruits that there is no bigger honour than to serve one's country, and that they are a source of pride for the country and the leadership.

Sheikh Mohamed also stated that their commitment to the nation demonstrated their selflessness, discipline and sense of responsibility.

In June 2014, President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, issued Federal Law No. 6 for the Year 2014, on the national military service and reserve force.

The law is in accordance with the principles of the U.A.E. Constitution, as referred to in Article No. 43, which states that defending the Union is a sacred duty of every citizen and national service is an honour for citizens as per the law.

On 31st August, the National and Reserve Authority welcomed the first batch of young Emiratis who began their national service, which is compulsory for all male citizens aged between 18 to 30 and optional for women. Emiratis who have not completed secondary school serve for two years, while those with a secondary school certificate serve for nine months.

Al Manama camp is one of five locations used for National Service training. - Emirates News Agency, WAM -
