Visitors interested in studying at army schools or in military service can obtain information from recruiting centres. September 22 was chosen in connection to the revolutionary year of 1848, when the suppressed Slovak nation opposed the power of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Armed Forces spokesman Milan Varga told the TASR newswire.
