Dear friends,

In our country the corona epidemic is almost over so we yesterday succeeded to organize together with the Bovec Community a ceremony devoted to the 75th anniversary of the USA 10th mountain division ski race in Mangart (June 4 1945).

Participants on the ceremony were Minister of defense of the republic of Slovenia Matej Tonin, ambassador of the USA in Slovenia H.E. Lynde C. Blanchard, Mayor of Bovec Community, Mr. Valter Mlekuž, member of Slovenian Parliament Mr. Daniel Krivec, Commander of the 132 Mountain Regiment Ltc Simon Lindič, members of Slovenian organization of Mountain Soldiers, military bra orchestra, skiers from 132 Mountain regiment of the SAF, representatives of ski factory ELAN……

Our next steps will be in autumn this year when we planned to publish a booklet about the race, first in Slovenian language (cca 100 pages – already prepared), followed by a Round table, permanent exhibition in fortress Kluže and at the end Chris Antony film Mission Mt. Mangart.

We will keep you posted.” Slavko Delalut.
