Our Armed Forces are responsible for defending territorial integrity, independence and sovereignty; ensuring  internal security; and assisting the civilian population in the event of disasters or emergencies. 

On the 105th Anniversary of the Mexican Revolution, President Peña Nieto granted promotions and awards to members of the Mexican Army, Air Force and Navy and the legendary Squadron 201, which returned victorious from the Philippines 70 years ago, after participating in the Second World War.
