Peacekeeping delegation returns to hero’s welcome

Major Mohd Hishamuddin bin Haji Marzoki, who led 30 Royal Brunei Armed Forces (RBAF) personnel under the United Nations Interim Forces (UNIFIL) peacekeeping mission, advised future deployment members to be mentally prepared for being away from their family in a new environment. The 30 RBAF personnel, who were part of the Malaysian Battalion 850-7, returned to the country on December 4, after completing a 13-month deployment peacekeeping mission. Joint Force Commander Brigadier General Haji Abdul Razak bin Haji Abd Kadir received the Brunei contingent at a welcoming home ceremony at the Multi-Purpose Hall in Bolkiah Garrison on Tuesday.
