Farewells with distance

In hammelburg, the process of disbanding the officers' waiting battalion 2 begins. Two of the three company commanders have already been bade farewell.

Even though formations and the distances required for them are regulated in the central service regulations, it was not long before the officers' warden battalion 2: keep your distance. The unit was "broadly positioned" on the occasion of the company surrenders under the necessary conditions to reduce the risk of infection entered. The commanders of the first and third companies were dismissed – without successors.

Corona formation

The battalion commander, lieutenant colonel mathias steiger, buried the men and women of the battalion and was pleased that, despite strict conditions, he was able to create a worthy framework for a company handover. "The main mission, the training of the junior officers in the courses of the officer advisor course (OAL) and the course for infantry competence enhancement (LIKE) are completed", steiger opened the event and thanked the soldiers currently deployed to help with the covid 19 pandemic for their commitment and perseverance. The battalion had detached soldiers to bad neustadt, aschaffenburg and oerlenbach.

In view of the low volume of traffic, there were 23 percent fewer accidents than in the previous year, at 181,000, according to the federal statistical office in wiesbaden on friday.

The same applies to the number of injured, which fell by 16 percent to around 27,600.
