"GENDARME GARRISON ROOM" OPENED on August 18 in Hungary, in the  
Opusztaszer National Heritage Park (Ópusztaszeri Nemzeti Történeti Emlékpark). 
This is the very first permanent gendarme exhibit since 1945. 
We thank all those who contributed to it. Their names, as well as 
details and pictures of the exhibit are in the website's Museum.

For the continued growth of the exhibit, we ask all our friends to support it financially, 
even if only with a nominal small amount, so the sheer number of contributors would speak 
of the respect people still feel toward the gendarmerie. 
See details in the Newsletters.

We established a medal on the 70. anniversary of the illegal disbandment of the gendarmerie
to commemorate the terrible sufferings the gendarmes had to endure by the hands of the communists. 
It was awarded to all gendarmes (or their wives or descendents) and their supporters.
As an association with the gendarmerie still leads to a disadvantage in Hungary, 
we do not publish the list of the recepients, except the ones awarded post humus.

We express our STRONGEST PROTEST to the Vagabund publisher for craftily using our name 
and photographs in their 2009 book on the gendarmarie, which reflected the communists' 
anti-gendarmerie stand and bias. See details in the October 2009, and 
January and April 2010 	Newsletters.
