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 of the legendary Squadron 201, which, 70 years ago, returned victorious from the Philippines, after participating in the Second World War.

President Peña Nieto thanked the Armed Forces for their unreserved commitment, their high sense of duty and their unconditional loyalty.
