Default Assistance requested with Serbo-Croatiion caption; break-up of Yugoslavia

Hello Friends,

This candid photo appears to picture JNA troopers on a winter combat patrol during the Balkans Wars.

Could somebody please provide a translation of the caption?

Does anything stand-out about this patrol; uniforms, weapons, formation?

Thanks in advance for the assistance.

All the best,
TJ

In 2004 there was no any wars there anymore. And that is the soldiers of Yugoslavia not JNA. JNA stopped to exist after 1995

I dont understand you. Yougoslavia also stopped to exist in 1991 and so these can not be Yougoslavian soldiers.

SFRY the socialist republic officially stoped being on 1992 not 1991. But federal republic of Yugoslavia became a country after that. And then changed name to union of Serbia and Montenegro until separation in 2006.
So I hope this helps you to understand.

I was not aware of this name existing.
Wikipedia says the following: " known as the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia from 1992 to 2003"

Dragani, Bibi I Dedi from Philip from (army) military
(Names of his family or friends)

Srezojevci(I am not sure what it means) December time of soldiers 228 battalion (veze) that is communications II second unit on battle attack mission.

So soldier sending a picture of his unit to his family. It is very hard to read his handwriting. But I am not sure what battle mission they had in 2004? There was no war and fighting then.

Hello Friends,

According to Wikipedia, Srezojevci is a village in the municipality of Gornji Milanovac, Serbia. According to the 2002 census, the village has a population of 424 people.


It doesn't appear to be near any border areas.

Thanks,
TJ

Ok that helps. The way he wrote it is like writing to whole village. Like saying “Hi New Yorkers “. That was not location where he was stationed. He was probably from that village.
