General Del Sette rewards the worthy carabinieri. Among the awards, the "Alpha Commander"

(To Arms of the Carabinieri)

This morning, at the "Salvo D'Acquisto" barracks in Rome, the general commander of the Carabinieri Corps Tullio Del Sette conferred a Gold Cross to the merit of the Carabinieri and 77 commendations to the military who have distinguished themselves in the service activity in Italy and abroad.

The "Croce d'Oro" of the Arma dei Carabinieri was handed over to the "alpha commander", who over the course of more than 47 years of military career contributed to the creation and development of the Special Intervention Group (GIS), participating in first person to numerous high risk operations, during which he faced, with professionalism and uncommon courage, all kinds of risks. He has planned and carried out delicate protection and safety services, engaging in the study and development of escort techniques that are increasingly in line with emerging needs, contributing in a decisive manner to the evolution of the employment doctrine of the special department.

"Today's awards attest to the value and courage that every carabiniere highlights in times of need - said General Del Sette - but they are also testimony to the variety of professional and technical excellence that the ARMA expresses in the various areas and sectors in which it is daily engaged".
